4-H Super Sitter class held at Cobscook Community Learning Center in Trescott
Trescott, Maine — On Dec. 5, University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H volunteer Kathy Stanwood led a group of five area youth through the 4-H Super Sitter program, in which participants learned how to feed a baby, change a diaper, select age-appropriate children’s toys, and safely advertise sitting services. Volunteer Julia Brady, a retired nurse from Lubec, taught basic first aid including treatment for insect bites, choking, cuts and minor burns, and how to call 911.
