Energy Express Enters its Last Week

The Wayne County Energy Express program enters its last week with children. Site teams started June 8. Children started July 2 and met daily at the five sites (Crum, East Lynn, Fort Gay, Ceredo-Kenoa, and Buffalo). Children engaged in reading and hands-on activities (art, drama, writing, etc.) to help reinforce reading skills. Here are a few celebrity readers who visited the sites to read with children, as well as samples of the great artwork completed this summer. To learn more about Energy Express, please contact our office at 304-272-6839.

4-H Youth Complete Community Art Project

At 4-H Camp this year, youth had the opportunity to decorate a tongue depressor stick. In turn, the Wayne County 4-H Ambassadors took those decorated sticks and created a design on a green canvas. This work of art will be hung at a business, agency or organization in Wayne County (this has yet to be determined). If you know of anyone who would be interested in having this adorn their place of work or their business, please contact our office at 304-272-6839 or email Julie Tritz, 4-H Extension Agent. Many thanks to Phyllis Brumfield for the idea and for making the green canvas.
