Meet a local 4-Her: Gradey McNally – getting involved means having fun in 4-H

Hi, my name is Gradey McNally and I am a second year member of the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club. For my second year in 4-H I enrolled in the beef, visual arts, clothing and foods and nutrition. In my beef project I bought two steers, Spot and Star. I was able to show them both at the Osage City and Overbrook fairs.

I had so much fun with my friends at the fairs this summer working with our animals and spending time together. For cooking I made one of my favorites, banana bread! For visual arts, I put a Lego kit together and entered that for both fairs.

Besides the fairs, which is always one of the highlights of my summer, was getting to help my club with our annual caroling event and putting together a box of goodies for local soldiers who are deployed during the Christmas season.

A few other activities I attended were our district’s officers training, where I went to the recreation training, and County Club Days, where I gave a Demonstration on “Show Day”. I also got to help with the annual Melvern Thanksgiving dinner as well as our local Trunk or Treat.

I cannot wait to start my third year of 4-H and continue having fun while learning about my projects and giving back to my community!
