Picture This Wayne County is Back!

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'ers Explore Egyptian Cuisine

Our International Travel 4-H Club traveled virtually to Egypt on Tuesday evening, January 19, 2021. Members of the club made Koshari (a noodle, rice, chickpea and lentil dish) and a flatbread. The next club meeting is February 16 at 6:30 p.m., when the club "travels" to India. To learn more, call the Wayne County Extension office at 304-272-6839.

Youth Leader Wins Drone

Please help us congratulate Duke Parsley of the Whites Creek Critters 4-H Club. Duke participated in the 4-H Teens as Teachers program offered by the State 4-H Office last year. His task was to teach the program "Game Changers" to youth in his county. He taught 40, the most of anyone in the state and as a result was awarded this very cool drone! For more information on opportunities for teens, please contact the Wayne County office at 304-272-6839 or email Julie Tritz, 4-H Extension Agent.
