02/24/2012 - On Saturday Jan. 28, 2012, a 4-H Leaders' Training was held for Delaware County leaders and teen members at the Cornell Cooperative Extension office in Hamden. Twenty-four 4-H leaders and teens attended the four hour training. The day began with some get-acquainted games provided by 4-H Community Educator Emily Roach. Emily and 4-H Team Coordinator John Hannum explained the 4-H mini course offerings for the Spring and answered any questions posed by the leaders and teens.
This year each participant had the option of attending two of five classes including creating a Wooden Key Holder taught by Walton Central School Technology Instructor Sal Salvia; a Simple Horse Saddle Rack taught by 4-H Animal Science Educator Donna Carlton and her husband Donn; Lowfat Chocolate Silken Pie taught by Delaware Academy Home Economics teacher and 4-H leader Terri Sherman; Horticulture & Terrariums taught by SUNY Delhi Professor of Horticulture Julia Ward; and Basics of Knitting taught by 4-H Community Educator Emily Roach.
Leaders and teens attend these classes to further their education and bring new and fun activities and skills to their 4-Hers and clubs. The instructors did a great job and the day would not have been a success without them. Thank you to all who attended. We appreciate the great work you do with 4-Hers throughout the county.
