Spivey, Foster, Bear chosen as 4-H ambassadors

Each November Clare County 4-H host an annual 4-H Fall Awards Banquet to distribute county awards to 4-H youth and adults. This year’s Banquet was a great success!  At the 2013 4-H Fall Awards Banquet, approximately 200 4-H family members and friends came to show their support for 4-H youth and volunteers of Clare County. The 4-H Awards Banquet is one of the ways 4-H recognizes youth and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication for the past year.

In addition to county awards the 4-H Ambassadors for the coming year are announced and celebrated with a cake generously donated by Witbecks Family foods of Clare. The 2013/2014 Clare County 4-H Ambassadors selected are: Senior: Crysta Spivey, Intermediate: Vanessa Foster and Junior Silas Bear., each of these youth will be out and about Clare County promoting 4-H at festivals, parades and events.
