– Two of our Senior 4-Hers attended the State 4-H Congress held in Clemson.

– One Senior competed at the National Shooting Sports Competition held in Nebraska.

– Introduced 4-H and participated with Summer Reading in conjunction with Saluda School District for four weeks in July.

It was a great year, and we are now planning for the new 4-H year!
