4-H members will be recognized for their involvement and achievements in 4-H this past program year. The banquet is open to any 4-H member to recognize any achievements, accomplishments, or involvement in Logan County 4-H. Even if you are a club member but have not won any awards this year, you will be recognized. There will be plenty of other 4-H members present from across the county to talk to and share stories and experiences with.
The evening will begin with a banquet. The 4-H Council will provide the meat, silverware and drinks, we just ask if you plan to attend, please bring a side dish or dessert for each person in your group. Friends and family members are very much welcome and invited to attend. After the meal, there will be a picture slideshow showcasing some of the activities and events held throughout the year. We’ll follow the evening up with an awards and recognition ceremony. Throughout the night silent auction items will be on display to bid on to help raise funds for the county 4-H program. Anyone wishing to attend the banquet needs to call the Extension Office at 270-726-6323 and RSVP by November 6th. Remember you do not have to have won any awards, just by being a 4-H member you and your family and friends are welcome to attend.
In addition to the banquet we are requesting a couple of things from the community. First, if anyone has any pictures from 4-H events from this year, or year’s past, please contact the extension office. We would love to include your photos in the slideshow to help celebrate our Centennial. Also, we are looking for the oldest living 4-H alumni in Logan County. If you think you fit the bill, please call the Extension Office and let us know. We’d love to recognize you at our banquet this year.
Several Logan County youth will have the opportunity to stand in the spotlight soon for their achievements and involvement in 4-H. Each year, 4-Hers work hard giving speeches, doing demonstrations, creating various projects for fair entries, and competing in all sorts of contests. Throughout the year, these 4-H members stay busy planning, practicing and being involved in any number of events. Then, each fall, they have the opportunity to be recognized on the county and area level. Volunteer leaders will also be recognized for taking an active role in leading clubs, serving on the council, or giving a helping hand at one of the many 4-H events held in the past year. The Area Achievement Banquet for the Mammoth Cave Area will be held on December 8th here in Logan County.
All of these active 4-Hers are to be commended for their hard work and dedication to their various 4-H projects this year. It’s so easy for kids today to sit back and watch as life passes them by. By taking a proactive approach to these projects and programs, these youth have expanded their abilities to learn and develop into motivated, goal oriented, well rounded citizens. These are very talented, very bright individuals who live their lives with purpose and meaning. Each project or program they involve themselves in takes time and discipline to put the very best into what they do. These valuable life lessons will follow them throughout their school years and carry over into the college scene and finally the working world.
Many of the awards and levels of achievement earned in 4-H are often used on college scholarship applications and professional job resumes. If you are interested in starting a 4-H project, joining a 4-H club, or attending a program, stop by or call the Extension Office for information on upcoming programs and events. You can also fill out a 4-H enrollment form to receive the monthly 4-H newsletter filled with up-coming events.
