Overbrook 4-Her shares Osage County 4-H pet project, assists fair organizers

Wylie Young, of the North Osage 4-H Club, hosted a countywide pet project workshop July 14, 2018, at his residence in Overbrook, Kan. The event focused on encouraging project participation and how to prepare for a show.

Wylie, along with Lynnea Nelson, also of the North Osage 4-H Club, gave project talks, demonstrations, and answered questions about their project experiences. Guest speaker Amy Miner gave a presentation about the TNR Program (trap, neuter, release) and her efforts to help control the feral cat population in Scranton. Other activities included a brief project meeting and a tour of Wylie’s backyard pets. Lynnea Nelson provided refreshments that were enjoyed by all.

Wylie also enjoyed participating in leadership activities this year during the Osage County Fair.  He attended board meetings before and after the fair, served as the junior superintendent at the 4-H and open animal costume contest, and helped serve customers at the fair board’s concessions stand. He plans to assist in the planning and operations of the fair again next year.
