News Release

Local youth to present 4-H fashion show

Area youth from Winnebago County will present a 4-H Fashion Revue this Friday, July 13, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Old Stone Church in Rockton, IL to highlight clothing garments 4-H members made in their 4-H sewing projects this year.

4-H youth have been working on their projects all year long and have spent many hours making sure every stitch is just perfect. “4-H philosophy is to learn by doing and helping each other,” states Amy Young, volunteer of the 4-H program. “I continue to be so impressed and humbled by the people I meet through 4-H, children and adults alike.”

At this fashion revue, members will demonstrate the confidence they have gained from working on their clothing project. While modeling their outfits, members will engage the audience with their style, swag and stage presence. We invite the public to join us for the 4-H Fashion Revue this Friday.
