Clinton County club has tasty Martin Luther King Day tradition

For the past 25 years, the Buttercups 4-H Club in Clinton County has made it a tradition to bake bread on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The members have made a wide variety of bread creations including cinnamon rolls, bread in a bag, mini loaves and standard bread.

This year's concoction was French bread. "One goal of the club is to be a place where members can learn to make inexpensive projects, as well as test out various project areas," says Diane Sinclair, the Buttercups leader. (Reprinted with permission, Illinois Farmer Today)
