Shelby County 4-H Week was a huge success

The winning club received $25, second place received $20 and third place received $15. All clubs received $10 for participating.

All the clubs did a wonderful job promoting Shelby County 4-H and deserve a big thank you for all their hard work.

International Night

Shelby County 4-H clubs filled the 4-H Center on Tuesday, March 12. Clubs picked countries from around the world, found recipes and then made one to two dishes to share with everyone. Clubs also provided decorations and information about their countries.

Countries included: Austria prepared by Ful-O-Pep, Brazil prepared by Silver Spurs, China prepared by Oconee Eager Beavers, France prepared by Strasburg Tailtwisters, Germany prepared by Shelby Sparklers, Iceland prepared by Shelby Showstoppers, Italy prepared by F.A.R, Lithuania prepared by John Jordan Jaybirds, Mexico prepared by Kaskaskia Cottonmouths and the United States prepared by Shelby County Cloverbuds.

A special presentation was done by Oconee Eager Beavers. Two of their members along with leader Annette Sims, made a Chinese dragon and the kids paraded around the 4-H Center. There were 13 members that were part of the dragon. The dragon looked awesome.

Clubs were asked to bring non-perishable food items to International Night. The collection total was 264 items which was given to C.E.F.S food pantry. The Moweaqua Rustlers went shopping at Moweaqua Foods and delivered 285 items to the Moweaqua Food Pantry. Findlay Feeders donated cleaning supplies, paper towels, etc. for the Findlay Fire Department.

New this year, Federation asked everyone to vote for their country’s favorite food dishes. One vote was equal to one penny. 4-H families came through with the votes with a total of 12,802 which equaled $128.02. C.E.F.S food pantry was given a cash donation of $50 and the winning club received the remaining balance. Winning the most votes was the Oconee Eager Beavers with a total of 3,399. Silver Spurs received 2,975 votes for second place and F.A.R received 2,362. Thanks to everyone who voted!
