Participants will learn how to cook fast, healthy and tasty recipes that fit easily into any meal plan. Extension educators are coming to the senior center this month and next to lead discussions on such topics as important numbers you need to know, planning healthy meals, healthy food preparation, and physical activity. Classes are offered weekly for four weeks, with a three-month follow-up class. Lab tests will be offered to measure A1c. To learn more, come to the free cooking demonstration and information session Monday at 1 p.m. at the senior center (in the Mill Hall Fire Hall, 9 Peale Ave.) For more information about the cooking demonstration or the class, contact Laurie Welch at 570-726-0022 or law27@psu.edu.

Youth nonprofits can benefit

from Kiwanis project

MILL HALL — The Mill Hall Kiwanis Club is again sponsoring the Fall Youth Raffle, a project that helps youth organizations raise money in an easy way. The Kiwanis club conducts the drawing and provides all the prizes. It also provides the raffle tickets to eligible youth organizations for free.

The participating organizations then sell as many tickets as they can and keep all the money they collect from these sales, without the work of organizing the drawing or the prizes.

The raffle runs for six weeks, Oct. 1 through Nov. 9.

Participating organizations must reserve their tickets ahead of time by emailing johngephart@comcast.net or calling 570-726-3333. The reservation deadline is Monday, Sept. 17. Nonprofits that reserved tickets in the spring for this raffle are also asked to confirm their reservations by the same deadline. Clinton County non-profits that serve youth are eligible for this fundraiser.
