“My fourth year in 4-H was filled with a lot of memories! My best experience this year was the spaghetti dinner. I enjoyed serving our community, familiar and non-familiar faces included!! The best part about it was all the money went to the TVTA Cares Committee. The TVTA put the money into foods for students in school whose families can’t afford it. When public presentations time came I had challenges, except this year I wasn’t as afraid to talk in front of our group. I am ready for my next year in 4-H to start!”
