Miranda 4-H Wins Top County Club
Recently the 4-H County Awards Ceremony took place and Miranda 4-H Club received Top 4-H Club countywide for the second year in a row. The club is very honored to receive this award and looks forward to continuing their growth.
During the awards ceremony, Malachi Church, a member of Miranda 4-H Club, was also accepted as a 4-H County Ambassador. This is the highest honor given in 4-H at the county level. The relatively new Miranda 4-H Club now has two 4-H County Ambassadors. The other is Jonathan Archibold who was accepted last year.
Miranda 4-H Club is only one 4-H Club in the Southern Humboldt Unified School District. The Club is open to kids from 5 to 18 years old.
The projects the club is offering this year are Art (Drawing/Painting), Blacksmithing, Cooking, Crafts, Horses, Hunter Safety, Lego Engineering, Outdoor Adventure, Poultry, Rabbits, Swine, and Woodworking. Members choose which projects they are interested in and only take the one(s) that they want. They also attend a monthly community meeting with the entire club where there are often games, crafts and always a potluck dinner provided in part by the 4-H Cooking project.
If anyone is looking to join Miranda 4-H Club and participate in any of the projects, then come to the community meeting on October 2 at 6:00 p.m. at Stevens Hall in Miranda. Enrollment is $55 for a member. But for a limited time, new members are only $5. So come, make friends, and join in the fun.
If you have any further questions about the club please contact Shanna Archibold at (707) 498-7217.
