The youth who participate in 4-H activities don’t mind sp>eaking out about the fun they have being involved in the wganization. Michael Warren, of Newtrai Grove, is a senior at Hobbton and has been in 4-H for 10 years, according to Wilks. He recently returned from the national 4-H CcHigress in Orlando. Brian Evans of the Mingo 4-H club was honored recaitly for over eight years of participation and achievement. Jackis Price of the Belvoir-Go- Getters club has been involved in the program for four years. “Both of these 4-Her’s are very deserving of this award and are to be commended on their outstanding parti cipation in 4-H over the years,” Wilks said. If it weren’t for volunteers many of the 4-H programs would be out of reach for youngsters in this county, 4-H Extension Agent Deleon Wilks said. Above is Trooper K.R.
