On Saturday, Oct. 14th, 15 4-Hers attended a Popcorn Workshop from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM held at the Palo Alto County Extension Office. 4-Hers spent the day experimenting with popcorn.

They prepared a number of different popcorn recipes, performed some popcorn experiments, and even learned a little popcorn history. Included in the workshop was time for sampling! All participants got to take home popcorn balls and caramel popcorn to share with their families.

Participating 4-Hers included Paula Licht, Kenzie Hoffman, Rebecca Licht, Henry Miner, Kourtney Kogel, Claire Kassel, Kennedy Schurg, Olivia Lace, Indy Holscher, Hudsyn Holscher, Rachel Miner, Ben Hurley, Emmy Schneider, Chloe Schneider, and Kate Sorenson. A special thanks goes out to Sheri Schurg, an adult helper, who spent the day helping wherever needed. We would also like to acknowledge Jolly Time for sponsoring this event with lots of door prizes, two popcorn history books, and certificates for free popcorn.
