OSU and Fayette County extensions announce grilling program for grandfathers and their grandchild


“Grillin’ with My Grandchild,” a new program by Ohio State University Extension and Fayette County Extension, will have Fayette County grandfathers and one of their grandchildren grilling dinners together, creating an electronic memory book, and having a great time.

The three-session program series will be held on consecutive Oct. 3, 5 and 10 from 5-7 p.m. at OSU Extension Office, 1415 US RT 22 SW, Washington Court House. The program will be inside using electric grills.

The program is free, and is open to Fayette County grandfathers and one of their grandchildren, grades 5-12. Space is limited to the first 10 grandfathers who register.

“This new program is not only informational but it’s designed to create some cherished and lasting memories for grandfathers and their grandchildren,” said professor Jim Bates, field specialist with OSU Extension and director of the project. Pat Brinkman, Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Educator for Fayette County, will be assisting with the program.

“Grillin’ with my Grandchild” is being presented in collaboration with OSU Extension Fayette County and with funds from a 4-H State Foundation grant. Those wishing to register should call the Fayette County Extension office at 740-335-1150. Contact Pat Brinkman at 740-335-1150 or brinkman.93@osu.edu with any questions.
