4-H small engines workshop held

University of Illinois Extension office in Carlinville held a Small Engines Workshop on Monday, Feb. 20. Veryl Reiher of Carlinville led this workshop and taught youth about identifying small engines parts, discussed tools needed to do the job, explained how engines work, and provided an opportunity for youth to overhaul a small engine. Reiher has been a mechanic for over 55 years and enjoys sharing his expertise with youth during this program. Some of the youth who participated in this program are currently enrolled in the 4-H Small Engines project, while others were young people with an interest in this field of study.
