4H Honored in Columbia and Greene Counties

4-H Receives Proclamation from Greene County Legislature

The Medway Mountaineers 4-H Club of Earlton represented all Greene County 4-H Clubs when its members attended the September meeting of the County Legislature. There they accepted a proclamation from Legislator Michael Bulich of Catskill. The 4-H members first recited the 4-H Pledge and then, 4-H Club members Lyda Jo and Rhoderick Herdman, and Edward, Ian and Henry Ross each shared a highlight of their 4-H participation. This included Edward’s sewing project where he made an amazing Western-style shirt that he wore in the 4-H Fashion Revue, Ian’s learning the traditional needlework technique of chicken scratch and creating a wall hanging to all the others showing their trophies won at the Greene County Youth Fair recognizing their showmanship abilities in goat, swine, sheep and poultry. The 4-H members spoke before a large audience, who were totally enamored by the youths’ composure, providing applause after each young speaker.

The proclamation recognizes National 4-H Week, October 7-13, and the accomplishments of the 4-H Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties. The proclamation noted 4-H’s beginning in rural America with its spread to cities, towns and villages, as well. It also recognized the many volunteers, who lead 4-H clubs and who support 4-H work in the community, in schools, and in after-school programs.

4-H Receives Proclamation from Columbia County Board of Supervisors

Sunnyside Up 4-H Club members represented all Columbia County 4-H Clubs when they attended the September Board of Supervisors meeting. There they accepted a proclamation from Supervisor Art Bassin of Ancram, who is also the Board of Supervisors representative to the Cornell Cooperative Extension Board of Directors. Each of the 4-H members shared a bit of their favorite experiences in 4-H, ranging from raising a turkey and selling it through the 4-H Livestock Auction at the Columbia County Fair, to raising rabbits and cavies, to excelling in public speaking.
