1st Year Overnighter
Clover Bash
18 new campers and 13 teen leaders
attended this year’s 1st year
overnighter at Camp Towles April
10th and 11th. The teens led the new
campers in games and activities as
well as showed them around the camp
facility, answering their questions
about summer 4-H camp. On Saturday, all of the participants learned
about visual presentations before
preparing and giving their own visual
presentations on topics ranging from
blowing bubbles to folding origami.
A HUGE Thank you goes out to all of the
organizations , businesses, and
individuals who made this fundraiser a
GREAT success for the 4-H program.
Over $1400 was raised to benefit 4-H
members and county 4-H events.
Arch Coal’s Leer Mine sent a
representative to meet with the kids
Saturday morning and present the
Taylor County 4-H program with a
donation for the Taylor County
4-H Endowment. How! How!
