NC 4-H members are busy at the "Four Corners", which is the intersection of 46, 63 and 64 three miles south of Deer Park.


The summer of 2007 has been one of torrid heat and humidity. But on Saturday, August 4, 2007; the heat of summer eased up a bit for North Country 4-H.

Brats and hot dogs were served at the Holiday Station located at the Four Corners from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. The club members all worked two hour shifts.

This couldn't have been done without the help of Angie Averil, SSG Holiday Station Manager, who coordinated the chips and the Coke wagon for the club. Deer's Locker, Jesse and Lynette, donated the hot dogs.

June 2007 Highlights

During the May 2007 meeting North Country 4-Hers filled the flower barrel under the deer by the community bulletin board sign. It will be taken to the fair to be displayed in July. Char Croes, project leader, did a craft with the 4-Hers. The cement blocks they made will be displayed near the deer and flower barrel. They read "4-H, head, hands, heart, and health"

If it looks like these youngsters are freezing, it is because that is where the temperature was on April 7th.

The Easter Bunny has arrived and it is time to go to work, as played by Cody Wilcoxson.
