The Licking 4-H Club awards banquet was held Thursday, Nov. 11, and members were recognized for their participation in activities for the 2021 4-H year. Activities included LEGO, Arts/Crafts, Community Service, Gardening, Cooking, Poultry, Rabbits, Dairy Cow, Dairy Goats and Lambs. Four members’ activities also included being officers.
Officers for 4-H are, from left, Adam Hagler-photographer, Caleb Sutton-Treasurer, Daniel Sutton-Secretary and Joshiah Sutton-president.
There are hundreds of projects in which 4-H youth can participate. Each individual 4-H club offers activities based on members’ interest in a project and availability of an adult volunteer to lead the group in a project.
The new 4-H year began in October and lasts until the following October, so now is a great time to join. The 4-H club is also looking for people in the community who have a talent or skill and would like to volunteer to help with projects. If you have any questions about how to join as a youth member or volunteer, please contact Flo Crisp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
