The Emery County Fair is the culmination of the 4-H year for most 4-H'ers. This year is no exception in the quality and quantity category of this fair. We have seen artwork, houses (both gingerbread and bird), photography, jewelry and clay people. What a fair!
There were a total of 119 entries this year with an additional 30 Cloverbud entries. (Cloverbuds are youth who have not yet turned eight years old and completed third grade.) Five rosettes were given for outstanding 4-H club work. This year the rosettes went to Andie Curtis for her needle felted Nativity, Chase Fausett for his white charcoal artwork of a wolf and Indian. TJ Lacock was awarded a rosette for his clay figure called the "Cowboy by the Fire" and Tina Lacock received her rosette for crocheted Angry Bird hats. Kaylee Swasey received a rosette for outstanding work by making a difficult patterned quilt called Trees. All of these youth have done a great job and any one of them could have walked away with the rosettes.
A huge thank you goes to every 4-H volunteer club leader that takes time to influence the life of Emery County youth through this program. As the Extension staff we thank you for your time, talents and willingness to share your knowledge with future generations.
More and more youth need the values, skills and guidance 4-H offers. People volunteer for 4-H for many reasons. One obvious benefit is to help guide and counsel our country's future citizens and leaders. As a volunteer you'll also grow as a person, develop new leadership skills, meet new friends and have great adventures!
Adult volunteers play an important in the 4-H program. We need you! Contact Utah State University Extension at 435-381-2381 or come into our office at 75 East Main #114 to enroll your club today.
