The 4-Hers gathered for the annual Achievement Day Celebration on Nov. 7! There were many new faces in the crowd as our numbers have grown in the last year. Our 4-H Ambassadors and Teen Leaders helped to present the awards to our 4-H members. We had a great time getting to know each other and celebrating the end of the year. The Kountry Kids club brought snacks, the West Butte Club led us in an ice breaker and the Blazing Saddles Club brought decorations for the First Baptist Church Activity Center.

Our Excellence in Project awards go to nominees who show outstanding work in a 4-H Project or an activity area.
