Make the most of the holidays with Quick Bites tips


Jan Swoope



As the end of a stressful 2020 nears its end, two free Mississippi State University Extension Services' Quick Bites programs focus on decorating the season and preserving memories.


Quick Bites are interactive, hour-long video sessions offered on designated Thursdays each month. Experts on a variety of topics share their insight with those who sign up to participate either at a local county Extension office, or via Zoom video conferencing.


Programs for December include:



■ Dec. 3 - MSU Plant & Soil Sciences instructor Lynette McDougald returns with floral designs in a program titled "Traditions." The focus will be on creating arrangements with locally collected materials, involving young and old collaborations and reviving old ornaments.


Register in advance for this meeting at to receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting.


■ Dec. 10 - "Making Digital Memories" features Assistant Extension Professor Mariah Morgan of the MSU Center for Technology Outreach with advice on organizing digital photos. She will share basic to advanced tips to upload photos from your phone, photo storage, printing photos and online products for making digital memories to share with friends and family.
