Fall Farm Fest set for Oct. 7
Like to eat? Join the Fun with Foods program at the Buckingham Extension Office. Learn basic cooking skills, kitchen and food safety, and nutrition information while preparing a dish of food to take home. Due to limited oven space, most dishes will need to be baked after getting home. This class is for youth ages 8 and older and will be held at the Buckingham Agricultural Center from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Participation is limited to 15 youth per session. Youth may sign up for either the Tuesday series or the Friday series. Tuesday series will be held on Oct. 17, 24, 31, and Nov. 14. Friday series will be held on Oct. 13, 20, Nov. 10 and Nov. 17.

Since Buckingham schools are back in session, please remember to update your contact information for the school if you are a parent of a school-aged child. It is important that the school be able to quickly reach parents in the case of an emergency. Parents’ phone numbers can change frequently, and this can cause a problem with the school’s instant alert system. It is very important to notify the school when you change phone numbers. Failure to do so could result in you being unaware of important information such as school delays, early dismissals or your child’s attendance.
