National 4-H Week Review:
Thank you to everyone who participated in celebrating Grundy County 4-H October 4-10, 2015. We had 13 people participate in the canvas painting on Sunday, Oct. 4th at Stylish Living in Grundy Center. On Tuesday we took a walk to the park to take pictures and learned how to incorporate Elements and Principles of Design in photography. We also had the previledge of helping with the K.A.T. program at the Kling Memorial Library on Wednesday. Kids experimented with paper helicopters, potatos that powered alarm clocks, sail boats that used wind, alumninum foil boats that hold weights, and watch M&M's change. We ended the week with and open house at the Extension Office and a visit to the Barn Stahl Petting Zoo & Corn Maze. We also had a variety of contests: Sign My Shirt, Coloring Contest & 4-H Story Contest for anyone including adults to participate. Thank you to our alumni who posted pictures of your years in 4-H it was really neat to see and read about.
