4-H’ers honored at annual banquet


Cloverleaf 4-H'ers from the first through 5th grades competed this year in Project Achievement, livestock and horse shows, horse judging and shooting sports, as well as serving as club officers and performing community service.

If you compare the photos side by side, you'll spot differences between those first 4-H winners back in 1905 and those of today.

Mostly, there were no girls in those photos, and the only project was corn.

Also, they won things like bat guano (fertilizer), which I've been told wouldn't much be appreciated today.

But some things never change - like the glow on each face of pride in a job well done.

4-H'ers belong to a group, develop as individuals, give generously to their communities, and learn to master different skills.

At the annual 4-H banquet, they celebrate making the best better in each of their lives.

We also celebrate and thank the individuals, organizations, and government boards whose support makes our program so successful.

Special thanks also to donors and bidders in the annual silent auction, including both 4-H families and businesses Hayes Furniture, Belk's of Conyers, and Carmike Cinema.

To learn more or join, call us anytime. Sixth through twelfth graders should attend the first County Council 4-H meeting of the year on Monday, September 10, at the Newton County Administration Building at 6 p.m.
