Jackson EMC and Farm Bureau Celebrate AG Week at Nicholson Public Library | JacksonHeraldTODAY
Children at the Nicholson Public Library celebrated AG Week by reading this year’s AG Book of the Year, “How to Grow a Monster.”
Karen Ewing of Jackson EMC and Lexi Love of the Jackson County Farm Bureau introduced the story and the book to the Nicholson community. In addition to the story, the children also got to take home a plant in biodegradable ice cream cones to plant.
“We would like to thank the following individuals for their generous donations to our program: Karen Ewing, Jackson EMC, Lexi Love, Jackson County Farm Bureau, Home Depot at Banks Crossing, and Ingles of Commerce,” said Rhonda O’Keeffe, Head of library. .
O’Keeffe says, “Looking for a fun and educational program for kids during Spring Break? Look no further than the Nicholson Public Library. Join us on Thursday, April 7 at 10:30 a.m. for our Ecoreach program. Graduate students from the Odom School of Ecology at UGA will present a program on water pollution.”
The Ecoreach program is designed to increase awareness and enthusiasm for green and environmental issues. Through various activities, children will discover how they can protect our waterways and the wildlife that live there. The program is free and open to children 4 years and older.
