Pilot Club

As school was ending, members of the Pilot Club of Winnfield were thinking about the safety of our children over the summer. Pilots and their Brainminder Buddies visited every first and second grade class in our parish to present puppet shows on how to play safe and play smart. Each of the cute, fuzzy puppets had a safety tip for the children. They told the boys and girls to protect their brains by wearing a helmet when riding a bike, a seatbelt when in the car, a life jacket in a boat, to look both ways before crossing astreet, and to dial 911 in the event of fire or finding a gun.

Gail Shelton speaks to Kiwanis Club

Gail Shelton, artist andowner of the Pea Patch, spoketo the Kiwanis club, Monday,June 12, 2017. Mrs. Sheltonspoke to the club about colored pencil drawing. She is amember of the Colored Pencil Society of America. Colored pencils that artist use are not the same as the colored pencils that we used as children. She learned about these colored pencils when she took some art students to Northeast La. University (now known as ULM). There are 2 kinds-anoil-based lead and a wax-based (prisma color). Colored pencil drawings are done on paper. You can use the wax-base on canvas but you have to use a solvent.

Shelton does her work from photography. She used apower point to show various pictures that she has done and how she did them. As shes howed a picture she would tell where the photograph was taken and she would explain how she was able to recreate the picture. Colored pencil drawing is tedious and time-consuming.

Shirley Speaks at Recent Rotary Meeting

When it comes to estate planning, almost everyone takes steps to ensure that the big-ticket items such as the house, car, properties and investments go to those people that the benefactors desires.

But what about all the little things around the house that have been accumulated over a lifetime? Who gets Grandma’s yellow pie plate?

This was the question that 4-H agent Karen Shirley put to Rotarians when she spoke to the Winnfield club May 31. This concept in planning was developed by the University of Minnesota Extension as one of the life skills offered to young students. Mrs. Shirley pointed out that, “4-H is more than cooking and cows. A lot that we do centers on worthwhile life skills.”

DARE Officer Jones Speaks at Recent Rotary Meeting

When DARE first came to schools across the country, the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program aimed at teaching young children to “Say NO to Drugs.” However, the focus has changed local DARE officer Anna Jones told the Rotary Club of Winnfield on May 17.

As it turned out, the more children learned about drugs, the more likely they were to being exposed to them. As a result, DARE personnel now go into schools as officers to help children develop a positive relationship with law enforcement. There were 403 students who took part in Winn’s DARE program this year just ended.

“In the past, we were unintentionally showing kids what they could do,” Jones explained. “Now we teach about choices, consequences, responsibilities. How to be safe. Now we talk about alcohol, tobacco, bullying. How to respond. How to avoid situations.”
