Middle Park 4-H Council

On the first Monday of every month, Middle Park 4-H Council meets at the Hot Sulphur Springs Town Hall. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. and last one to two hours. During its meetings, Council works on its primary responsibilities: Planning county-wide 4-H events, fundraising events, and community service projects.

Although six council members lead the meetings, with parents and extension office staff supervising, all kids involved in a 4-H club are welcome to attend. Current officers are: Sammi Halley, president; Sean Cameron, vice-president; Meghan Cameron, secretary; Joshua O’Hotto, treasurer, Shyla Bohall and Anna Soltis, historian/reporter; and, Anna Soltis, parliamentarian. Parent advisors are Bill Halley for two years, and Frank Culbreath for one year.

Some of the annual events Council plans are BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) and Achievement Day. The BYOP, held during the end of October, is a fun evening when kids carve a pumpkin, play games, and make a craft. Achievement Day, also held in the fall, is a day to recognize kids in 4-H for their accomplishments as well as other people who support 4-H. Community services for December were baking and sending cookies to the troops, and adopting a family for Christmas.

If you’re interested in learning more about 4-H, or have any community service ideas, contact the extension office at (970) 724-3436.
