When most people think of 4-H they think of animals and county fairs! The truth is there is much more to it than that. In the winter months after fairs, members of the Winner’s Circle 4-H Club have been busy and active with learning, fun and community service! Here’s a few of our winter activities:
Healthy living is one of the goals of the 4-H program and these Winner’s Circle 4-H Club members took on a new activity at the Cloudcroft ice skating rink for fun and exercise! Pictured are Wes Mitchell, AJ Mitchell, Grady Le Ivins, Ryleigh Lamb, Alice Allen, and Logan Gray.
Another little known aspect of the program is record keeping. These members tracked the expenses and activities of their 4-H projects throughout the year and compiled them into an impressive record book. Pictured are Logan Gray who earned his public speaking pin, Ryleigh Lamb who earned pins for Rodeo, Horses, Market Lambs, Dairy Goats and Dairy Heifers as well as the Outstanding Agriculture Award. Trinity Park who earned her pins for Dairy Goats, Scrapbooking, and Creative Touches (sewing). Grady Le Ivins earned recognition for a Cloverbud Record Book. Trinity Park also won the State 4-H Record Book Essay Contest!
Members assisted the Federated Republican Women with a cleanup project removing thistles and picking up trash in Ruidoso. Pictured are Logan Gray and Brando Bridges. Also present were Ryleigh Lamb and Grady Le Ivins.
