At the annual summer celebration, held on June 27, 2008, the North Country 4-H club sold root beer floats from 4 to 8, and the HCE group sold bars and cookies. The 4-H and HCE had to move under the canopy when a downpour came about 5:30-6 o'clock which lasted for about a ½ hour.


Easter 2008 Highlights

The 2008 Easter Egg Hunt took place on March 22, in the snowiest of conditions in recent memory. But 48 young people attended the event on a dark and dreary day anyhow.

Members present at the March 4-H meeting filled eggs, numbered prize eggs and prizes to give away.

A thank you from North Country 4-H goes to the Lions Club and Senior Center, along with members of the community who donated to make this year's Easter Egg Hunt successful.

February of 2008 was a month where much of the time the temperature was far below zero. But the North Country 4-H group was busy as ever with a variety of activities inside and out.

North Country went snow tubing at the Badlands, Hudson, WI on Sunday, February 3. Those attending: Erica, Aaron, and Marshall Kemling, and Aleena and Mason Krueger. They had a blast!

On February 11, Officer Josh Stenseth of the St. Croix County Sheriff's Department's K-9 Unit came with his dog Ace and spoke to the 4-Hers about the K-9 Unit and explained the drug programs being used in St. Croix County.
