County Round-Up

Posted: September 1, 2011

The Northumberland County 4-H Clubs held their Project Round-Up on August 24, 2011 at the Sunbury Armory in conjunction with the Northumberland County Fair.  Nearly 100 4-H Members, Leaders and Family Members attended the Round-Up, which was followed by a picnic sponsored by the Northumberland County 4-H Development Council, 4-H Clubs, and County Fair.  A great big thanks to the judges: Bridget Andrews (CSC Extension Administrative Assistant, 4-H), Linda Hendricks (Columbia County 4-H Coordinator), Dale Hendricks (Columbia County Shooting Sports Volunteer Leader), Kathy Weller (Snyder County 4-H Coordinator), and Vonnie Young (Montour County 4-H Coordinator).  Also to Jeannie Snover and Traci Nicola, Backwoodsmen Club Leaders, for their help with registration and ribbon writing and to the members of the Northumberland County Council - Rachel Savidge, Gabby Smith, Amber Rarig, and Valerie Rarig AND Dylan Levan, Vice President of the Columbia County Council, for their help with keeping the younger 4-H'ers entertained between the project judging and picnic!

A big congrats (and Thank You!) to the Leck Kill and Saddle Starz 4-H Club, who both had 100% completion of their projects AT ROUND-UP!  (For those of you who were unable to make Round-Up, please remember that you need to contact Sam to make an appointment to have your projects judged prior to September 30!)
