Roosevelt County 4-H Council honored by the local Chamber of Commerce
The Roosevelt County 4-H Council was honored by the local Chamber of Commerce as volunteers of the month. Chamber President Karl Terry stated that the 4-H Council was selected for this honor due to their efforts around the community in outreach, and programming. Terry specifically cited the member’s recent 4-H programming, including a free photography workshop that not only brought visitors to the area, but engaged the youth locally providing them with a free educational program. Also noted was the decision of the Council members to bring back the Roosevelt County Fair’s traditional Pork Chop Breakfast. This event was once a staple of the community, and was then discontinued by another organization. Knowing how much the event meant to the people in the county, Council members started the tradition up again. The event was so successful, that it topped sale records from previous years and sold out.
