Country Ridge 4-H held its Second Annual Showcase on April 14 in Davenport. The showcases give kids a chance to learn and practice public speaking without having to stand in front of a crowd. The club also sells dinner tickets to aid in fundraising so the members can participate in different workshops throughout the year and enjoy professional demonstrations at meetings.
“It is so neat to see our kids beam with pride and accomplishment as they get to tell family members, public service members, and county administrators about their projects that they have worked so hard on this past 4-H year,” says Lyndsey Bolden, one of three organizers for the event and mother of Addyson Bolden. “We look forward to many more years of showcases and helping teach our members how to be productive, respectful, kind, and helpful members of society.”
