The Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club kicked off a great summer by participating in 4-H Camp and the Melvern and Osage County fairs.

The club had seven members attend 4-H Camp at Rock Springs. Upon returning was the Melvern fair, where the club entered their projects and participated in the parade with a float commemorating the Royals winning the World Series in 1985.

The following week, June 27, 2018, was the Osage County Fair, which involved many memorable events: project competitions, conference judging, livestock judging and livestock shows (just to name a few). The club also entered a float in the Osage County Fair Parade with a red, white and blue baseball-themed float called “Bats off to the Red, White and Blue!”

On July 9, many club members attended the 4-H Day Camp, held at Pomona Lake. Activities included making bird feeders and kindness rocks, learning about pollination, going on a scavenger hunt trail, and ending with a water fight.

At the end of July, the club did community service projects that included picking up Memorial Day flowers at the Lyndon Cemetery. They also pulled weeds in the Lyndon school landscaping. They celebrated their hard work with a cookout and pool party at the Lyndon Pool.

The Overbrook fair will be the last big event of the summer. It has been a very busy season, but one they won’t forget!
