HAVING A BLAST AT 4-H FUN DAY
They cheered. They danced. They shopped.
More than 350 members of Bossier Parish 4-H, from elementary to high school, had a ball at 4-H Fun Day at the Bossier Civic Center. They were kept busy competing in club cheers, line dancing, playing Internet Safety Bingo and creating 4-H recruitment banners. Students were divided into groups to design banners to hang at their schools to recruit future 4-H members.
Another highlight? Spending their Clover Bucks. Throughout the year, 4-H members receive Clover Bucks in exchange for doing demonstrations at club meetings, leading the pledges, entering contests and a number of other things. At 4-H Fun Day, they got to redeem those bucks for goodies like ring pops and candy, hats, bracelets and other trinkets.
The Bossier Parish 4-H program has the largest number of members out of the 13-parish Northwest region and is the eighth largest in the state, according to 4-H Parish Leader Jeannie Crnkovic.
The members in attendance at Fun Day were just a few of the many enrolled in Bossier's program. Those in attendance were extended a special invitation for the day of fun after completing at least three community service projects and a project book.
Of course 4-H fun doesn't end when school lets out. Coming soon? 4-H Camp at Camp Grant Walker for those students who scored well on their project books.
