Meet a 4-Her: Gradey McNally’s summer highlight is spending time at county fairs

My name is Gradey McNally and I am a fifth-year member of the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club, where I am serving as our club president. For my fifth year in 4-H, I enrolled in beef, horticulture (gardening) and meat goat projects.

In the beef project, I bought a steer in the fall and one meat goat in the spring for my goat project. I was able to plant a garden and tend it in the spring and summer months.

I had so much fun with my friends at the fairs this summer working with our animals and spending time together. Besides the fairs, which is always one of the highlights of my summer, I was able to help my club with a community service project we have been doing for two years now. We are redoing the picnic tables that are used at Melvern Sunflower Days, and are purchasing the materials and tools needed to repurpose them back into more sturdy picnic tables for everyone to enjoy, and doing the work required to get the project done!

A few other activities I attended were District Club Days, where I gave a multi-media presentation on “How to Compost.” I also helped out at our club’s trunk or treat, and the Melvern Easter Egg hunt.

I am looking forward to a new 4-H year and cannot wait to start my sixth year of 4-H, and continue having fun while learning about my projects!
