Picture this Wayne County

The Wayne County 4-H Club Leaders met virtually on September 15 to discuss the best course of action for the club program this fall. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic and the university requirements for any in-person meetings, we came to an agreement to suspend 4-H Clubs from meeting in-person through December 2020. Also, we will not be holding an in-person 4-H Achievement Night and will instead do a virtual slide show; more information will be forthcoming. In lieu of in-person club meetings, the following is one optional activity for club members this fall. 

Details about Picture this Wayne County

Our office has partnered with Robert Thompson, a local historian and author who has identified a variety of places of interest in Wayne County. We encourage 4-H members to snap pictures of as many of these as they would like and email them to Julie Tritz, along with your name and the place of interest. We will post them to our Facebook page as they come in.

4-H members that take photographs of at least five places of interest will have their name placed for a drawing for one of Robert Thompson’s book. We will draw three names. Winners will get to select which Robert Thompson book they would like for their library! Here are the places of interest to photograph this fall:

  • Ramsdell House
  • Kenova RR Bridge
