4-H members to display projects at show


Approximately 150 projects by area 4-H members will be on display on Friday, Aug. 14 through Tuesday, Aug. 18, at the Peterpaul Recreational Park, 5615 Rome-New London Road.

The display will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Monday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

The event will feature the “Harden Challenge.” Harden Furniture of McConnellsville donated several unfinished chairs and signs for 4-H members to decorate.

“We encourage the public and patrons of Peterpaul Recreation Park to stop by, view the projects and vote for their favorites,” the announcement from event organizers said, adding that health guidelines, including “social distancing and wearing masks must be followed,” adding that the “event may be canceled if warranted.”

For information about enrolling a youth in 4-H or becoming a volunteer for the program, contact the local 4-H office at 315-736-3394. 4-H is the largest group service organization in the nation, program officials said.

They added that the program has a learn-by-doing approach which allows youth the opportunity to explore different areas of interest by either working independently or in a club setting.
