Community Focus - Ag Literacy Week
- May 01, 2014
To celebrate National Ag Day on March 25, 2014 and Ag Literacy Week Mach 23-29, 2014 members of the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women's Committee read the book, The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valarie Cis, to Kindergarten - 2nd grade classes at all the elementary schools in the county. Each committee member did an activity with the class and then read the book about a Beeman and Honey Bees. They then gave honey stix to the students. Joyce Hester and Phyllis Long went to Hustonville, Kathy Kelley went to McKinney, Miranda Brown went to Stanford, Gracie Gilbert went to Crab Orchard, Mary Ann May went to Highland, and Thelma Blair went to Waynesburg. The book was then donated to the classroom along with a teachers' guide including many more activities, and a newspaper that told more about bees.
