4-H Fun Day at Ozark Folk Center

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Candles, pottery, and cloth dolls were just a few of the projects Sharp County 4-H members enjoyed making during the "4-H Fun Day" at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View on June 13.

Over 70 people attended this event, which allowed over 40 4-H members to participate in the Young Pioneers program, offered by the Ozark Folk Center.

4-H families were also given time to enjoy the Craft Village -- a chance to step back in time and see, firsthand, how our ancestors lived.

A blacksmith, broom maker, candle maker, cooper artist, toy maker, and seamstress were just some of the crafts people families visited on their way around the Craft Village.

Admission ticket, lunch, and 4-H t-shirt were provided to 4-H members and their families by the Sharp County 4-H Foundation.

Sharp County 4-H would like to thank all the generous donors who give to the 4-H Foundation to make events like this possible: Sharp County Quorum Court, Dr. Roger Shaw, Sharp County Farm Bureau, and the Cherokee Village Kiwanis.

This event was an example of the 4-H philosophy to "learn by doing."

If you are interested in learning more about the many opportunities available to youth, ages 5-19, through 4-H, please contact the Sharp County Extension office at 994-7363.
