HUERFANO- The Huerfano County 4-H council met on Monday March 10. Two delegates were chosen to go on the Washington Focus trip in June: Adam Kimbrel and HAllie Homerding.
The conference, “Citizenship Washington Focus” brings in 4-H students from all across the country to discuss issues that face our youth today. The kids also get a chance to do some sightseeing in our nation′s capitol. It is a six-day intensive summer citizenship program for youth age 14-19. CWF delegates learn about the democratic process and their role as citizens while they experience our nation′s capital. They get the inside scoop about how government really works from prominent guest speakers. College-age program fellows lead bill writing workshops, a national issues forum and mock elections and congressional sessions that prepare students for leadership now and in the future.
To raise money for them to go to Washington, the Huerfano County 4-H clubs will be having a spaghetti dinner on Sunday April 20th at the Huerfano County 4-H barn in La Veta, from 11 am to 2 pm. The cost for adults is $6 and for children $3. There will also be a silent auction at the dinner. Go to http://www.citizenshipwashingtonfocus.org to see more.
