Seven girls in Henry County have been practicing their acting skills in this new and exciting special-interest 4-H Club! The girls love to plan their own skits and puppet shows and perform in front of a wide variety of audiences. Whether it is at a pre-school, a 4-H event, on the radio, or in front of an audience in the community, these 4-H’ers are showing off not only their communication talents, but also working on their teamwork and note taking skills. There is no cost to this club. Everything they need comes right from their own homes, and the 4-H program fee is paid by a county-wide soup supper that Henry County 4-H members host on a yearly basis. Right now the girls are working on a video show. They are using flip cameras, and they will be working on filming and editing. There is definitely not a boring moment in this active, youth driven 4-H Club!
