Morgan County Sardine Club

How did sardines get their name?  Herring canned in Sardinia were called sardines. It’s as simple as that!

Mike Kligerman and the Ukelele Club celebrate Sardines!   In October 2018, the Sardine Club had over 140 members celebrating National Seafood Month. It made a motorized float [1:14] for the 2018 and 2019 Apple Butter Festival Parade and handed out free samples of sardines & tuna plus health advice from the national Seafood  Nutrition Partnership.

The 2017Sardine Club Volunteers (from left to right;  Lewis Elias, Dawn Beal, Wendy Baracka, Angel Routzahn) organized a Sardine Club Celebration during March, National Nutrition Month.

In 2016, Sardine Club members had a large poster exhibit [0.50] at a reception in the Morgan County Library. In 2017, Club members made many posters that were displayed in the school cafeteria.
