The Emery County Extension Service held it's annual awards night at the Museum of the San Rafael recently. Dennis Worwood welcomed everyone out and invited them all to eat a great dinner of chicken soup, chili, or beef stew in a bread bowl, along with salad and dessert.

Following dinner, Worwood began the award ceremony. He first thanked the adult leaders and said the 4-H program relies on dedicated leaders. "The value of the contribution given by the adults involved in this program is priceless," said Worwood.

The first awards he handed out were the first year awards. These award certificates were given to all the children who just completed their first year in 4-H.

Worwood then gave 4-H pins to the children who have completed four years in the program. The 10 year awards were noted, although the 4-Hers who were given these awards are mostly all away at college now.

First year leaders were given an award for their accomplishments, and the five and 10 year leader awards were given.

Christine Jensen handed out the premiums for the Emery County Fair and the Utah State Fair.

During the year in 4-H, the participants are encouraged to keep a portfolio of their activities. These portfolios are judged in three age divisions, junior, intermediate, and senior, and awards are given for the best portfolios.

Each leader was given an opportunity to speak to the group. Reed Fehlberg told about one particular trip into the desert and his 4-H group located and reported a specific swallowtail bird. After the report, they were informed of the suspected disappearance of this bird in the area.

Worwood recognized the Patriot Club, led by Dawnette Tuttle, for their outstanding service. He noted the many acts of service the club has undertaken.

The Cleveland Wranglers Club was then given an award.
