Jerseyville Ag Construction group host 10th 4-H woodworking clinic
March 20, 2017
Mr. Goetten and the Jerseyville High School Ag Construction students offered another successful 4-H woodworking clinic from 4 to 6 p.m. on Feb 21 at the Jersey Community High School. Twenty youth from Jersey and Macoupin Counties built and decorated blue bird nesting boxes. The more experienced Ag students showed the younger students how to follow directions, use a drill, hammer and nails. After construction and decorating was completed, the group enjoyed refreshments of pizza and soda.
This year marked the tenth workshop presented by Mr. Goetten’s Ag Construction group. Judy Benz, Jersey County 4-H Program Cordinator said, "The program continues to be one of the most popular clinics offered by Jersey County 4-H."
