The Mt. Adams 4-H Club held a swimming and pizza party in conjunction with its annual achievement program on Oct. 22 at the Hood River swimming pool. President Kay Pratt had suggested an outstanding member of the year be recognized for each project. The following youngsters were acknowledged for their successes this year: beef, Angel Murillo; clothing, Kaylene Tyndall; horse, Audrey Hill; sheep, Jaylin Throop; swine, Trent Steinbach.
Mt. Adams 4-H Club members who completed their projects, attended the majority of their project and community 4-H meetings, participated in club activities, and submitted year-end records were eligible to apply for scholarships and campships. This year, there were 17 applicants for the scholarships and the recipients were Audrey Hill, full scholarship; Dustin James, half scholarship; and Dakota Jones, half scholarship. The members can use the funds to either attend a camp or purchase supplies for their project for the coming year.
In addition to year pins, several other special awards were presented to the Mt. Adams 4-Hers. The winner of the Shawna Roberson memorial trophy for most-improved livestock member went to Audrey Hill. Stacey Ruland was the recipient of the Glenda Harter memorial trophy for her friendliness, courtesy and leadership qualities in a livestock project. Dakota Jones won the Related Arts award for her achievements, friendship, leadership and courtesy in sewing, cooking and/or craft projects. Terry Arnold was honored to win the Linda Spies memorial volunteer of the year acknowledgment. Congratulations to the members and leaders on the successful completion of another 4-H year, and may next year be a fun and learning experience for everyone.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who revived the annual Halloween Party at the school. After a year's absence, the event returned to provide a great evening of entertainment for old and young family members alike. Costume contests, cake walks, skills booths, a haunted house and treats all contributed to the fun. My apologies for leaving anyone out who was instrumental in reviving this safe and fun activity. Davina Feller, Toni Troh, Pam Keithly, Jensi Smith, Anita Wellenbrock, Rachael Throop, Todd French, Jessica Molyneux, Lisa Parsons and superintendent Shane Couch all helped organize the successful event. Local businesses and individuals who donated to the evening included the Shade Tree Inn, Meadows Mountain View Farms, Dickey Farms, Feller Logging, Rabanco, AJ Logging, Darrell Spies, Glenwood Women's Club and Mary Jo Bauerle. Thanks everyone!
