Growing Through 4-H
I’m a member of our local 4-H chapter, Country Expressions. This year I am the treasurer of our club. There are about 30 kids in my group. Our meetings are once a month. If we are working on a certain project, for example woodworking, we meet additional times with the woodworking leader. At our meetings we have member recognitions, say pledges (The Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Pledge), and read the treasurer’s report and secretary’s report. We also talk about the different projects we are doing and share ideas with one another.[jwplayer config=”movieplayer” file=”http://michigandairynewsbureau.org/dayonthefarm/media/Mason_4H_group.flv” image=”http://michigandairynewsbureau.org/dayonthefarm/media/Mason_4H_group.jpg”]
Each year I show animals at local fairs through 4-H. This year I plan to show pigs, a steer and dairy animals.
I’ve also entered many woodworking projects through 4-H, like bookends, a toolbox, a shelf, step stool, a show box and even a doghouse that won Best of Show last year. This year I’m thinking about entering a dresser.
