Wayne County 4-H News
In October, the Wayne County 4-H Program will have three new 4-H Clubs starting. They include:
Trout's Hill 4-H Club (town of Wayne): October 4 at 5:00 p.m., at the Wayne Methodist Church
On September 21, 2019, two 4-H volunteers were recognized at the annual WV 4-H Volunteer Leaders Weekend at WVU Jackson's Mill in Weston, W.Va.
Phyllis Brumfield (below) was inducted into
the WV 4-H All Stars. Phyllis has been a 4-H Club Leader and active in preparing activities and educational programs at camp for the past five years! She has also served as the Secretary of the 4-H Leaders for several years.
The Horse & Livestock 4-H Club held their monthly meeting September 16. Many thanks to (l-r) Jacob Mitchell, Jessica Mitchell, Molly Jenkins, and McKenzie Davenport (missing Jonah Mitchell and Mackenzie Cassels).

Our 4-H Shooting Sports Club held its first meeting since the summer break on Monday, September 9. Youth enrollment forms were passed out and information about the program. The next club meeting will be Monday, October 7 at 6:30 p.m. If you have children interested in joining, please contact our office at 304-272-6839 for location details.
This summer, Chase Smith (right), of the Whites Creek Critters 4-H Club was selected to represent West Virginia as an Ambassador with the National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador Program. He participated in a week-long training in Texas in early August to prepare him to serve in this capacity over the upcoming year.
The program allows 4-H youth to
advocate and promote the 4-H Shooting Sports program with stakeholders,
donors and to represent the program at state and possibly national
events. Furthermore, Ambassadors develop skills in leadership, public
speaking and community service as part of the program. Please help us
congratulate Chase on this accomplishment.
