Cherokee County 4-H members didn’t all sleep in over spring break as many of them took advantage to learn new things or provide services.

On Sunday afternoon families in the poultry and rabbit project met on the fairgrounds to remove cages from the barn, wash/store crocks and put protective edging on some of the other cages. Lots or renovations and improvements will be completed before the fair - make sure you check it out July 21-25.

On Monday, Anne Sharp hosted a dog workshop in the 4-H Building. Guest presenters were Deanna Steinbach and Anthony Cooper who explained and demonstrated Rally Obedience. 4-H members from as far as Allen County enjoyed bringing their dogs and learning about this new class during the day long event.

Wednesday morning members gathered at the Extension Office meeting room to make “No Sew Fleece Throws.” Each child had brought their choice of fleece fabrics and completed a blanket for themself or one to be used as a gift.

4-H is the youth development program of the Cherokee County Extension Service and is open to all youth ages 7-18. Anyone needing more information on 4-H can contact 4-H Agent Phyllis Kriesel at 620-429-3849.
