Members of the Fayette County 4-H Citizenship group enjoyed hosting an afternoon of fun for Fayette County Clover Kid members at a Halloween Party held in the Extension Office meeting room.  Activities in which the children enjoyed were a cupcake walk, pinning the nose on a witch, throwing spiders into a web, getting tattoos, coloring sheets and feeler boxes along with being finger printed by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department staff.   Photos
