Learn origami, history at SPARK Club sessions


Jackson County 4-H is planning two new SPARK Club experiences.

The Origami SPARK Club will give Jackson County youth in Grades 3 through 12 an opportunity to learn how to make origami paper crafts and learn about Japanese culture. Origami is a Japanese form of art.

The sessions are set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. May 17 and 10 to 11:30 a.m. June 16 at Zion Lutheran Church, 1501 Gaiser Drive, Seymour; and 6:30 to 8 p.m. May 24 and 10 to 11:30 a.m. June 2 at the Community Foundation of Jackson County, 107 Community Drive, Seymour.

The club is limited to the first 15 youth who enroll.

The Bicentennial SPARK Club is open to all Jackson County youth in Grades 3 through 12 to learn about history by visiting six different historical locations in the county.

Those locations are Bicentennial Headquarters, May 12; Jackson County Visitor Center, May 26; Jackson County History Center, June 9; Freeman Army Airfield Museum, June 23; Medora Covered Bridge, July 7; and Jackson County Courthouse, July 14. All meetings will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The deadline to register for this club is May 9.

For both clubs, the cost is $20, which includes access to all Jackson County 4-H opportunities and activities, while it’s free to Jackson County 4-H members who already have paid their enrollment fee for the year.
