On June 25, 2023, the Willing Workers 4-H Club went on a club tour. The club visited each family’s home to see their 4-H animals and projects. They started at the Newmans’ home in Carbondale, where the club enjoyed seeing their many different types of animals such as pheasants, rabbits, chickens, donkeys, turkeys, and pigeons. The club was given refreshments afterward provided by the Newmans. Next the club traveled back to Osage City where they met the Bosses’ pigs and goats. Their third stop was the Whitmers, where the club met the sheep, ducks, and chickens. At the edge of town the club stopped at the Stuckys to meet their chickens and see their art projects. The final stop was the Thielens near Lebo. The club had a great time meeting 4-H heifers, pigs, bunnies, and a bucket calf. The club then traveled to the Osage City Aquatic Center for a pool party and potluck. Thank you members who participated in the club tour!

Rock Springs campers

Three members attended Rock Springs 4-H camp. Julian and Jack Ferrar and Paige Thielen traveled to Junction City June 7-10, 2023, to spend several days participating in activities.

When asked what their favorite part of camp was Julian Ferrar said, “I loved trap shooting.”

Jack Ferrar said, “The activities were really fun especially the big swing, rock climbing, panning for gold, and archery.”

Paige Thielen said, “I enjoyed meeting new people.”

4-H camp is an opportunity for 4-H members to gain new skills while having fun.
