4-H News

July 20, 2002


The Meadowlark 4-H Club met July 9 at the Pendletons'. The club had its mini-fair. Members showed and described projects they plan to enter in the Douglas County Free Fair.

Members worked on a Meadowlark 4-H Club banner for the fair. Members also discussed their duties during the fair.

For recreation, the 4-Hers took a trip through the corn mazes at the Pendleton Farm.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds. Tray favors will be made at 6:30 p.m. before the meeting.

Douglas County 4-H Ambassadors have spent their summer promoting 4-H activities through the Parks and Recreation Department. Cathy Musick, Douglas County extension agent, helped direct project activities.

The ambassadors will promote 4-H at a booth during the Douglas County Free Fair in Building 21 at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds. They will have a registration to win gold coins, signifying the 100th anniversary of 4-H.

Ambassadors will give tours of the fair to children who signed up through the Parks and Recreation program. The 4-H ambassadors also will coordinate a church service during the fair.

Ambassadors for 2001-2002 are Brad Wilson, Tom Wilson, Sami Milligan, Morgan Trowbridge, Jim Ashcraft, Liz Pendleton and Jenna Brumm.
