Along with their leaders and parents, 4-H members gathered at the elementary school cafeteria Thursday for their local award ceremony and monthly meeting. It was a very busy and productive year for Licking 4-H, with many community service events, learning activities and livestock entries at the fair.
In addition to receiving their awards, members were treated to sub sandwiches, vegetables, chips and more, including some delicious chocolate desserts. The 4-H used their funds to purchase the meal, with the assistance of donations by Town & Country Supermarket and Walmart.
Awards were given for livestock production including poultry, goats, swine, and rabbits; gardening; cooking; robotics; outdoors (fishing); health and fitness; financial literacy; photography; arts and crafts; and community service. Pins were given for one, two and three years of membership. Clover pins were given to the younger members. Officer pins for the president and vice-president of the local group were provided, and three special awards were handed out – one to Adam Hagler for earning the most pins, and one each to Vera and Heidi Pereslete for the most community service.
