Legacy 4-H’ers enjoy county Club Days

March 13, 2008

The Johnson County 4-H Club Days were Feb. 23 at Spring Hill. De Soto's Legacy 4-H members participated in this event. Here are some of their accomplishments.

Natalie McCracken performed a dance with the 4-H Horse Club and received a top purple ribbon. Natalie said it was "really fun" and afterwards the dance team went out for ice cream to celebrate its win. The team will go on to compete in regional competition in Baldwin.

Brynn McCracken, who is just 7 years old, received a blue ribbon in junior project talk, a blue ribbon for her demonstration talk and a red ribbon for an impromptu speech. For her impromptu speech, she was given five minutes to develop a speech on her best family vacation. Then, she gave her talk in front of a room full of people. Overall, she was pleased with her performance and the ribbons she earned.

Alyssa Cooper and Kassidy Forshey received a blue ribbon for a speech they gave on sheep and fiber arts. Alyssa explained that they specifically spoke about carding, washing, spinning and felting wool.

When asked about the judges comments, Kassidy replied, "The judge liked our speech and thought it was good and creative." The judge also gave them constructive criticism by telling the girls they shouldn't move around so much during their presentation. Kassidy and Alyssa appreciated the comments.

Joshua Forshey earned a purple ribbon for a project talk he gave on effective public speaking. Kennedy Forshey sang a song with her older sister, Kassidy. The girls were awarded a purple ribbon for their duet.
