This year our son did 2 projects, Geology (he has the rock hound bug passed down from my parents!) and Turkey. Our daughter also did 2 projects, Chicken and Dog. I took over the club in April and we had alot to cram in before Fair in July!
We had the opportunity to borrow a snow cone maker from a local church thanks to one of our 4H families, and used it to do a fund-raiser for the club at the Porcupine Races on the 4th of July. It was a huge hit! Not only did the kids have a blast making and selling (and finally eating!) snow cones, they made an excellent profit for their fund-raiser.
Having the opportunity to volunteer as a 4H leader has become something I am personally extremely proud of. I love being part of providing this program for our local youth and being involved in so many young lives. I have a great time with the kids and feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful program.
