Clark County 4-H - Pictures From Our Past

4-H has offered and continues to offer countless opportunities for members to learn; not only skills for everyday life but also skills to be used later in life.  Many past members say that they still rely today on skills learned from a 4-H experience earlier in life.

Pictured are Bev Combs, Charles Orcutt, Patty Markwell, Susie Ellington & Randy Medsker-late 1960's.

One of the most common learning experiences is the 4-H Fair.  Held each summer, the fair gives 4-H'ers the opportunity to showcase their hard work they have contributed to their projects & also receive positive feedback on those projects. 

The skills, lessons, experiences and friendships of 4-H last a lifetime.
