Jackson County 4-Hers reflect great support by parents, 4-H leaders
We'd like to address this to all the Jackson County 4-H club members, leaders and parents.
We volunteered for a few days during the recent Jackson County Fair, tending the Depot Hill Store. Many of the 4-H members seem to be Rock Candy enthusiasts, which was shown by their arrival shortly after the store opened.
We were extremely impressed with the 4-H members' manners, respect and politeness, as well as their caring and sharing with their friends and family.
We had brought an old checkerboard set to use as part of the ambiance of the store. A short time after we'd opened the door, kids were asking permission to play a game or two on it. Every day there were a number of instructions, tournaments and rivalries played over that checkerboard.
We never saw any disagreements, just common courtesy and enjoyment between each player. Friends parted friends, with a handshake for the winner!
The kids also enjoyed sharing explanations of their projects and exhibits with us and when they'd be judged, plus how they had placed.
The delicious food in the 4-H building was another perk for us, as well as seeing the teamwork that went on to ensure success in there!
Obviously the 4-H leaders and parents did a good job of teaching this fine group of young men and women.
