We had wonderful opportunities happen this year. I would like to share a few.

A first year member writes: "4-H horse program helped me over come my fear of horses by teaching and helping me work with horses. I also like spending time with my friends at 4-H".

A first year member had a very wonderful year in the beef project. He won a blue ribbon, Junior Showmanship and went to Northeast Livestock plus had other projects as well.

A first year member went to state fair with her photography.

A member who has been in 4-H six years tried out the beef project this year and found new opportunities, learning experiences, friends and had a whole new world open to her. she did a wonderful job with it all. We are proud of you all!

So as you see there are are many opportunities awaiting you in the 4-H program if you choose to open the way.
