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.
