The Uniontown 4-H Club participated in National 4-H Week, October 4th – October 10th. The Uniontown 4-H Club met and created posters to promote 4H. The club’s posters were displayed at West Bourbon Elementary in Uniontown and Mayco Ace in Fort Scott. Also, club members wore 4-H shirts to celebrate National 4-H Spirit Day on October 7th.
The club wrapped up the week of activities by attending the Uniontown United Methodist Church on 4-H Sunday. The club was invited to share their favorite 4-H projects with members and were allowed to participate in the services in several different ways. Bariegh Farrell opened the service by leading the congregation in the 4-H pledge, Will and Austin Maycumber served as acolytes, and Seth Shadden closed the service by leading us in the 4-H Motto.
Following church services, the club got together for our 48 Hours of 4-H project, creating Birthday Boxes. A birthday box contains everything you would need to celebrate a birthday – cake mix, frosting, candles, etc. The boxes created by the club will be donated to local food pantries.
