Celebrating 100 years Stan Herd style
Crop artist helps 4-H Club mark centennial of organization
More than a dozen members of the Douglas County 4-H Club had a chance to apply their agricultural talents in an unconventional way Saturday at Pendleton’s Farm, 1446 E. 1850 Road. The aspiring farmers helped crop artist Stan Herd construct a copy of the 4-H club’s 100-year anniversary logo, which measured approximately 25 feet wide. The crew used mulch, corn leaves and recycled soda cans to map out the logo.
“It’s not permanent – if the wind came it might ruin the whole thing,” said Margaret Pendleton, 17, the 11-year 4-H veteran who organized the event. “But we got a lot of really good pictures.”
Pendleton’s Farm will be open from noon to 6 p.m. today for a viewing of the logo. Photos of the logo signed by Stan Herd will be on sale as well.
