Congratulations are in order to a few 4-H members this week . The Powell County 4-H Council hosted their 4-H Livestock Sale last week with 4-H members selling their project animals for great prices to local businesses.
Morgan Anderson, Michaela Moreland, Bryce Stephens, Hannah Canode and Kanzas Stephens earned nearly $5,000 (collectively) for their hard work and dedication to the 4-H Livestock Program.
We would like to thank all the businesses who supported and purchased animals: Tanner Dodge (Darrell Billings), Dustin Billings, Danny Billings, Rosa’s Garden Center (Delbert Brown), Whitaker Bank, Jim Dennis, D & M Fuel Stop, R & T Food Mart, Richard Henderson and Dennis & Daughters. A very special thanks to the Powell County Livestock Association for sponsoring and preparing our meal for the evening.
We would also like to congratulate the youth who won our 2008-2009 4-Her of the Year Awards. Leslie Stewart was the Pledge Leader & Photographer of the 4-H Cooking Club, Co-Secretary of the 4-H Shooting Sports Club, Pledge Leader of the 4-H Cloverbud Club and Vice President of Mrs. Johnson’s fourth grade 4-H Club.
