4-H to hold awards banquet

Tyler Baskfield

Moffat County 4-H will hold its annual achievement night at 6:30 Saturday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. Dinner will be pot-luck, so bring a favorite casserole. After the dinner, all the overall final awards for the 4-H program will be awarded.

DeLaine Brown, Extension Office director, believes the night is a fun way to wrap up the 4-H year.

“It’s just kind of a whole evening for the 4-H families to get together and other members of the community to get together and have a good time,” said Brown.

Awards to be given out include 8-inch by 10-inch picture trophies and 4-H participant of the year.

Christina Louthan will give a presentation on her 4-H sponsored, six week trip to Austria, including a slide presentation.

After the presentation the fun begins with a dance and an event called “fun on the boardwalk. “Fun on the boardwalk is a variety of games and activities in which the more than 300 people attending the event may participate.

The event gives people who participate in 4-H a chance to be acknowledged for what they have done in the program.

“The 4-H kids in Moffat County have accomplished a lot,” said Brown. “They work hard for what they do. The dinner is just kind of how those kids get recognized for their efforts.”
