Over the past several days, various news media have released lists of top stories from 2009 and from the first decade of the 21st Century. It was certainly interesting to have a review of what took place and certain news items I had already forgotten.  

I would like to take a few words to “review” 4-H for 2009 and say thanks to all of the 4-H members, parents, volunteer leaders and sponsors who participated and supported the Washington County 4-H program during the 2009 Kentucky 4-H Centennial.  I look forward to working with everyone as we enter a new decade.  

For information on upcoming 4-H events and activities, please contact the Washington County Extension Office at 336-7741 or visit us at our office location, 211 Progress Avenue.

Before leaving for the holiday break, the final leaf collection awards were presented to the students at Washington County Elementary School.  Those results are listed today along with a photo of the top student award winners.  Congratulations to each of them for an outstanding job.
