The Trail Blazers 4-H Club will have its organizational meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the fairgrounds. Area youth interested in joining 4-H are encouraged to come and sign up for projects. Parents are encouraged to attend as leaders will explain how 4-H works, how to keep a record book and how parents can encourage their child to grow through the program.
In past years the club was primarily a horse project club, but has expanded to have projects in sewing, cooking, gardening, Junior Market Livestock, leadership and shooting sports. New projects are added as parent leaders volunteer their time and area of expertise.

Suzan Cobb told me the Brain Busters program is off to a good start. Teen leaders from the Trail Blazer's 4-H club help to lead elementary-aged children in a movement based activity in which students learn basic facts such as state capitals and presidents, grammar rules, math facts and more while getting exercise. Brain Busters is held at the school after school until 4:30 p.m. Fridays.
