Anniversary committee wants photos, info on former 4-Hers
RIVERTON — In celebration of 100 years of 4-H, members of the extension education office’s anniversary committee from the University of Wyoming are asking former members and volunteers to help tell the story of the past century.
Committee member Kay Moyer from Cheyenne says they’re asking for copies of identified pictures, articles and events to tell the 4-H story. She said the committee also wants to identify long-time, multi-generational 4-H families in individual communities to spotlight them along with other 4-H alumni on a Wall of Fame.
It’s a huge undertaking because the 4-H club is the largest youth organization in the state. But, she says, each county will have a display listing former and current 4-Hers and volunteers at its fair and all the county walls then will be shown together at the Wyoming State Fair and Rodeo in Cheyenne.
Information can be shared by going online. The address is complicated, so we’ll send you to our own rivertonradio.com to make the connection. http://bit.ly/4hcentennial. As for photographs, they can be taken to a local extension office for digital scanning so the owners can keep the originals.
