is no novice when it comes to 4-H. “I have been in 4-H for seven years,” Amelia stated.

Over the years, she has submitted several entries for judging at the fair. “My past exhibits have been in the categories of cooking, sewing, heritage, speeches, PSA (Public Service Announcement.), presentations, photography, child care, electricity, robots and robotics” Amelia said.

She has received many awards over the seven years she has been in 4-H. “I received awards for my speeches and PSA. My PSA went to the state level one year,” Amelia stated. “It didn’t win, but I was glad it made it that far.”

Photographs of hers also went to the state level. “I received special recognition on my photos of the Niobrara River,” Amelia said.

In other categories, she has also received many awards over the years. “I don’t remember all of the awards I have received. I have awards for cooking, sewing, heritage, speeches, presentations and PSA,” Amelia stated.

Being involved in 4-H in a family affair. “I got involved in 4-H because of my dad’s family. My grandpa was in 4-H and was also a leader. My grandma was a 4-H leader,” Amelia said. “My dad and his two sisters were in 4-H. One of my aunts works in the extension office and another aunt used to.”

Amelia also has two brothers involved in 4-H. “Caleb and Andrew are also in 4-H. This is Caleb’s first year and Andrew’s first,” Amelia stated. “They both cook, do speeches, PSA, sew, rockets and photography. I help them with their projects.”

Amelia has been working diligently on her projects for this year’s Burt County Fair. “I work on projects in the summer. I try to start in the winter or spring on my sewing. I am usually working on projects until the night before the fair,” Amelia said.

She has many entries to submit this year. “I plan to enter cooking, knitting, sewing, blooming bucket, heritage and photography,” Amelia stated. “I will be showing my rabbit this year. I did a speech PSA and presentation this year. I was also a part of robotics club. We competed and made it to the state level.”

When Amelia is deciding what to cook or sew, she calls on her grandmother. “She is the one who helps me on those projects.,” Amelia said. “When is comes to photography, I look at the photos I have taken and see what ones are the best and where I can enter them in the fair. Heritage projects just come to me when I am looking at things that my grandma has of past family members.”

Amelia has three more years to participate in 4-H, participating in every aspect of it that she enjoys the most. “I enjoy learning and meeting new people and seeing my friends. I will see them at the 4-H workshops or awards and we will all hang out and just have fun,” Amelia stated.

Wisner to Hold Journey2Recovery Benefit


I want to let the NCMA and NMCA members know that August 23rd will be the date when the Journey2Recovery Benefit will be held in Wisner.  The purpose of the event is to raise funds to help people in Northeast Nebraska whose homes and businesses were seriously impacted by the tornadoes and storms that tore through the region in mid June.

 

What started out as being an auction to raise some funds grew into this event that will feature food and refreshments, live music, and an auction of 100 or more items.  I am attaching a list of auction items received to date.

 

The event will begin early that afternoon and go on until roughly 11:00 PM.  6 regional bands will perform before headliner Daryle Singletary takes the stage for the main event performance.  The bands include:  Cactus Flats, Jason Earl, Badd Combination, Belles & Whistles, skreTTa eTc, and the Punching Pumpkins.  Country and rock will be the main courses, along with burgers, hot dogs, cold drinks, and some great auction items.

 

Advance tickets at $15 each will go on sale on Friday, August 1st, through www.fuseweekly.com, or you can pick them up in person currently at the Ralston Arena or at Citizens State Bank and Pinnacle Bank in Wisner.  Tickets on the day of the event will be $20.  Children 12 and under will be admitted free.  The event will be held at Wisner River Park the week after the Thunder By the River tractor pull.

 

As our Facebook page says, this is where Nebraska Rebuilds Nebraska.  I hope that many of you can join us for some or all of the day on August 23rd.

 

Thank you for allowing me to share this with each of you.
