    The 2009-2010 Levy County 4-H Sewing campers completed a community service project as part of the camps. They made necktie coolers for our soldiers. When soaked in cold water these necktie coolers expand and assist with keeping our soldiers cool.  
    And as it happens, one of the fiscal assistants at the University of Florida IFAS Family Nutrition Program is married to a soldier. He happened to be home on leave as the summer was ending and has agreed to accept the coolers and take them back to the soldiers.

    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was a great day.  We had a Church group over from Hawthorne to come by and visit.  Some we hadn’t seen in several years.  
    Sometimes they come to see if I’m still here and I tell them my Lord hasn’t come yet so I’m still here.
