Preparedness Fair to be March 24 at LDS Church

From Staff Reports religion@newnan.com Raising your own chickens, processing and storing food at home -- even making fudge from beans -- will be among the topics at Preparedness Fair 2012 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. April White, who is organizing the event at the Old Atlanta Highway church building, said the program will offer a wide range of information and hands-on demonstrations for people who want to know about how to be more self-sufficient. The Preparedness Fair will be held March 24 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Attendees will see and taste delicious omelets made -- in a plastic bag -- using powdered eggs. A representative from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be present for the event. Topics will include: • the importance of water in food storage, • making whole grain breads, • making whole grain waffles and muffins using a blender, • surviving with an alternative grain diet, • how to properly and safely store food, • dry pack canning, • haircuts at home, • the basics of quilting, • teaching children to crochet and knit, • making sausage from cracked wheat, • treating grain for storage with diatomasceous earth, • kitchen shortcuts using homemade mixes, • making chicken salad and chili with beans using textured vegetable protein, • mending, • caring for pets. There also will be information on using LDS genealogical resources to trace a family tree. For more information about the Preparedness Fair, call April White at 770-251-5527.
