Seven adult 4-H Club volunteers and eight members recently attended the annual Southwest District Volunteer Conference at the Caddo Kiowa Technology Center in Fort Cobb.
The theme this year was “4-H Volunteers Grow Here.”
This conference is held in conjunction with the district speech contest. Three Jackson County 4-Hers — Kara, Regin and Michaella Reed — all gave speeches and represented Jackson County 4-H Club very well.
Ethan and Erick Moreau set up their mini boards and spoke with fellow district 4-Hers about robotics.
Tori Booker represented Jackson County 4-H as a district officer and set up her mini board shooting-sports display.
Volunteers got a chance to attend various workshops regarding starting a dog project club, record book planning, community service to service learning, performing arts, and other great topics. Everyone had a great day and learned a lot.
