Twenty-four youth from throughout Lincoln County were at the Tomahawk Middle School on Saturday, March 5 where they participated in a variety of 4-H project sessions as part of Project Discovery Day. Youth participated in sessions on topics such as basket weaving, arts, robotics, preserving food and much, much more. Sponsored by the Lincoln County 4-H Leaders’ Association and University of Wisconsin-Extension 4-H Youth Development in Lincoln County, Project Discovery Day is designed to provide youth in 5-year-old kindergarten and older, a chance to discover what they can learn and do in 4-H. This event is open to all youth and 4-H members are encouraged to bring a friend.
During the day, sessions youth participated in were led by the following 4-H adult and older youth volunteers and University of Wisconsin-Extension staff members: Lily Cordova, Amanda Kostman, Lisa Woelbing, Pat and Yvette Chieves, Beth Krueger, Lisa Krueger, Caroline Lemke, Peter and Maxine Schuetze, Cheryl Roets, Morgan Wolfram, Laurie Woller, Heidi Sturzenegger and Debbie Moellendorf.
Another 4-H Project Discovery Day is being planned for fall in Merrill. Watch for more information and registration materials in late August/early September.
