The University of Illinois Extension Office-Whiteside County held a 4-H Sewing and Nutrition Workshop Jan. 17 at CGH Medical Center in Sterling. The workshop was created by Allie Lancaster, 4-H program coordinator. The sewing section was led by Janice McCoy, family life educator; and the snacks section was led by Natalie Rodakowski, nutrition and wellness educator. The youth split up into two groups to make healthy snacks and pillow cases to take home. The extension will donate some of the extra pillow cases to cancer patients at CGH.
