Thirty-two youth from throughout Lincoln County were at the Lincoln County Service Center on Saturday, Oct. 1 where they participated in a variety of 4-H project sessions as part of Project Discovery Day. Youth participated in session 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: Amanda Kostman, Lisa Woelbing, Yvette Chieves, Beth Krueger, Caroline Lemke, Dan Marzu, Bride Maas, Peter and Maxine Schuetze, Laurie Woller and Heidi Sturzenegger.
Another 4-H Project Discovery Day is being planned for spring in Tomahawk. Watch for more information and registration materials in late January/early February.
