Posted: October 24, 2011

During the recent Delaware Township Harvest Fest 4-H members were given a chance to show off the projects they have been working on during the past year.

The Palette of Fun Club members displayed individual pieces of art, as well as a large tree mural that represented the work of all the members. The “On Broadway” Cloverbud Club presented their project books and a large display that highlighted the favorite part of their learning journey as they explored various phases of 4-H during meetings.

Last spring,  Rose LoDolce explored the topic of embryology as part of an independent study project. She documented her learning by journaling the experience. At the Fest, Rose answered questions about her project, showed photos of the chicks and displayed the incubator used in the project. 

A craft was taught to visitors coming to the 4-H tent. Club members and leaders instructed both children and adults about how to make a Talking Stick. The stick was used by Native Americans during discussions. The person holding the stick could speak and then pass the stick to someone else that wanted a chance to talk at the meeting.
