Ssssummer Ssssquash

The Community Center was visited again by Angela and Raven with the Food Sense Program who taught an amazing Nutrition Cooking Class. This month’s featured vegetable was SQUASH, which we learned takes on many different faces. After learning the ins and outs of the squash family, Raven and Angela taught us how to make Zucchini Fries! Of course with the word “fries” in it, the kids were excited to get started. To see the simple yet tasty recipe for Zucchini Fries click HERE. While the fries were baking we played “Concentration” and were tested on our squash expertise. The kids showed how smart they were while looking for matches of summer, pattypan, crookneck, and other squashes. Pattypan? Yes, that’s a real squash. To end a great class we all ate the delicious AND healthy Zucchini Fries. French Fries, eat your heart out.

Learning about the squash family

The fries were easy and fun to make!

The finished product!

Calling all SOCCER lovers!

Soccer season is approaching with our first game on September 11th! We still need a lot volunteer coaches, referees, score keepers and sponsors. Because the South Franklin Soccer is free for all of the children and youth who participate, the league relies entirely on volunteers and the generosity of many local businesses who each sponsor a team for $100.00. Last season we had over 150 children and youth participating and the league keeps growing! If you would like to volunteer or know someone who like to volunteer or even sponsor a team please call or email Amy Flood:, 801-691-5331.
