With the holidays quickly approaching, our thoughts and prayers go out to the less fortunate families in Kiowa County.
A year in the books!
November 10 marked the official ending of the 4-H year for the hardworking members of Kiowa County with the annual 4-H banquet.
Many members where recognized for their accomplishments throughout the year. The Kiowa County 4-H Council, President, Hatch Nelson; Vice President, Emily Nelson; Secretary, Katherine Trosper; Treasurer, Chase Stolzenberger; Reporter, Zoie Arnold-Kraft; and recreation leaders Clayton Nelson and Alexa Nelson; and Gaige Rittgers did a great job announcing the evenings events.
As I write this, Krystal is getting candy ready for all the kids that will be in costumes, most likely under their heavy coats, for the Halloween parade.
After cold few days, and the office being closed Wednesday, it is good to see some moisture. I know it isn't in the ideal form, but it is still good, nonetheless.
It has been a busy fall with many meetings and planning events for 4-H youth.
