The Edmonson County Conservation District, in partnership with the USDA and NRCS, recently obtained enough “Sammy the Soil” coloring books for each child in grades K-1 in Edmonson County, and also enough for children in head start.
Coloring books were delivered to Kyrock Elementary, and on March 25, Mr. Tim Bartee, NRCS, Mr. Jimmie Luttrell Supervisor, and Barbara and Orville Johnson, District Secretary and helper, visited South Edmonson Elementary to hand out coloring books and talk about conservation. Mrs. Barbara said everyone was pleased with the event and had a great time. On Wednesday, April 15, Mrs. Barbara took the children at Edmonson County Head Start some Sammy coloring books and discussed the importance of conservation.
"Edmonson County Conservation District Supervisors and staff would like to thank everyone for their kindness and support in getting the word out about conservation," said Mrs. Barbara. "We want everyone to know how important it is to our county."
There are a few coloring books left, so please drop by the District office on Washington Street and pick up one for your child or grandchild.
