FARMINGTON – The Davis County Extension Service is giving residents a chance to prepare for Christmas now Р rather than waiting for the frantic days just before Dec. 25.
“A lot of times we offer support for making gifts for the holiday, but it’s too close to the holidays,” said Joanne Roueche, Family & Consumer Science Agent.
“Now you can plan ahead, avoid the credit card blitz,” she said.
With that in mind, a series of classes are being offered through July. They’ll be in the Extension Classroom on the main floor of the Davis County Memorial Courthouse, 28 E. State Street, Farmington. There is a small fee to cover supplies.
Classes are as follows:
Ґ July 9, 1-3 p.m.
“Untangle the Holidays,” a class to help set a plan for the holidays. A CD will be provided to help set a holiday budget, gift lists and an inventory list. Holiday traditions and neighborhood gifts will also be covered.
Ґ July 11, 1-3 p.m.
“Upcycled T-Shirts,” providing ways to reuse an old shirt. Learn how to make a tote, scarf and more.
Ґ July 16, 1-3 p.m.

Ґ July 18, Noon-2 p.m.
