Seth Austin and Tucker Worley of the Newfound 4-H Club spent last week in Raleigh attending North Carolina 4-H Congress. Congress is where the elections for state 4-H officers takes place as well as the state level competitions for presentations. 4-H members who attend participate in a variety of workshops that focus on leadership and service. They also helped out with the state-wide Hungry to Help project where over 40,000 pounds of pasta were bagged for distribution at a local food bank. Congress is a great way to meet new 4-H friends from the West district and across the state. We’d also like to congratulate Seth on being recognized as our 2011-2012 West District Council Reporter. Congratulations Seth!!
