National 4-H Week

4-H window  

Fallon County 4-H’ers are joining youth from across the nation in observing National 4-H week, October 4-10. Locally, Fallon County 4-H Clubs observe this week in various ways by kicking off the week long celebration with 4-H Achievement Night which was held Oct. 4.

   Another way they observe National 4-H Week is by creating window displays. As you do your shopping in Baker this week, be sure to stop and enjoy the 4-H window displays. Local 4-H clubs set up these displays to promote the fun and learning involved in 4-H to their community. A panel of three employees from Denbury Onshore judged the displays on creativity, “4-H” or 4-H emblem being visible, depiction of “4-H Grows” theme and overall appearance.

   Winner of the first place window display was the Fertile Prairie 4-H Club. Their display can be seen in the window of N’Styl. The Red Butte Ramblers 4-H Club placed second and their display is in the window of the SMART office/Simply Chic Salon & Spa. Other window displays include the Country Cousins 4-H Club located in the window of J & M Lumber, Country Pals 4-H Club displayed at the Fallon County Times, and the Cloverbuds Club located in the window of Russell’s Clothing.

   Fallon County 4-H Ambassadors have chosen 4-H gifts and products to be given away each day during National 4-H week as prizes on KJJM’s flashback pop quiz each morning. Be sure to listen and win.

   4-H members, 4-H leaders, supporters, family members and friends declared October 7 as “Go Green” day and wore green to school and/or work to show their 4-H pride.

   Look at your Fallon County 4-H Program, and you will find young people taking the lead in addressing today’s challenges. 4-H is where young people explore, learn and discover in a safe environment. In 4-H, youth find their true passions, gain confidence, and give back to their community.

   Now is the perfect time to go green and become involved in 4-H if you have not already. Each fall, 4-H clubs reorganize and enroll new members and leaders. 4-H leaders are available to answer your questions about become a volunteer leader or joining 4-H as a member.
