On Feb. 9, the Height of Land 69’ers 4-H club of Becker County held a Cookie Bake at the Frazee Care Center

The 4-H club first conducted their business meeting in the chapel area of the Care Center and then proceeded to the Activity Room where many residents also joined the 4-Hers.


The 4-Hers worked together to roll, cut out and bake cookies. With help from some of the Care Center’s residents, the cookies were beautifully frosted and decorated. A joyful time was had by all in the spirit of the Valentine’s season.
