Shelby County 4-H Week activities planned

Shelby County 4-H Week is March 16 – March 22. 4-H leaders and families are going to be busy with all the activities that are being planned. Be on the lookout for window displays in Shelbyville, Windsor, Strasburg, Sigel, Moweaqua and Assumption.

March 13 – Federation members are taking cinnamon rolls to the County Board meeting at the Courthouse.

March 16 – Amazing Race

The Amazing Race consists of a 4 member 4-H team and a driver. Clues are given to members and they guess the location and then drive to their destination. Once they arrive at their destination, teams are given a Minute to Win It type of Challenge. Once they complete the challenge, they are awarded “4-H money” and are given clues to their next location. There are a total of 8 challenges that teams will compete in. After the race, teams will meet back at the 4-H Center and will have pizza donated by the Shelby County Federation. The “4-H money” will be tallied and the top 3 teams will receive prizes. Amy Rochkes is the designer of the Amazing Race course and 4-H thanks her for all her hard work.

March 17 – Members will attend a church of their choice.

March 17 – There will be a skating party at Silver Stars Skating Rink in Mattoon from 5:00-7:30 pm.

March 18 – Window Displays must be set-up by 9:00 a.m for judging. Clubs throughout the county decorate a business’s window based on the 4-H week theme. This year the theme is “4-H . . . More Than You Imagined”. Results are given out at International Night.

March 19 – International Night is held at the 4-H center at 6:00 p.m. Clubs pick out countries and then prepare food and decorate for that country. A food donation is also held. Clubs are asked to bring non-perishable food items which will in turn be donated to the Shelby County food pantry.
