BEGINNERS WORKSHOP—



There was lots of fun on June 15 at the annual 4-H Beginners Workshop held at Gause School and hosted by the Gause 4-H and Milam County 4-H Clubs. The workshop gave younger 4-H’ers an opportunity to learn about project activities. During the workshop, 4-H’ers learned about insects and made a bug sucker with Renee Sadler, a Milam County Master Gardener. Sadler also introduced the group to herbs as they made some bath salts. Wanda Lee, Gause 4-H Club manger along with Darlene Anglen helped the 4-H’ers pot plants in crazy containers. Teen leaders, Connelly Cooper, Cameron Cooper, Collin Kostroun and Emily McCoy assisted with the workshop by leading games with the 4-H’ers and also assisting the adult leaders with presentations. The 4-H’ers also made bookmarks with ribbon and plastic covered paper clips, along with enjoying banana ice cream made with frozen bananas and Almond Milk. Pictured are (front row, L-R) Abigail Olson, Jason Penick, (middle) Jake Penick, Jude Penick, Jimmy Penick, (back) Collin Kostroun, Renee Sadler, Wanda Lee, Darlene Anglen, Connelly Cooper, Cameron Cooper, Amy Penick.
