Linn-Benton Chapter Fall Update
We are pleased that harvest is over and fall has arrived! Our members put up two county fair booths and volunteered to help kids and their parents grind wheat and answer questions at the Benton County Fair. Thanks to Katie Glaser, Lorie Tharp, Kristi Miller, Betty Jo Smith, Laurie Schrock and Tina Miller. We presented “Golden Broom” herdsmanship awards to 4-H members at Benton County and an Outstanding Senior 4-H member award at Linn County. A new award was given at Linn and Benton County Fairs for the 4-H member with the highest accumulated points in several areas including fiber arts. The award was presented in an embellished thirty-one bag. Special thanks to Lorie Tharp and Katie Glaser for making this happen.
Betty Jo Smith is heading the committee to complete the OWA Commodity Quilt and have it ready for our auction item in April! Carrie Corrado is working on our cowboy/western themed Christmas tree project we do for Pape in Tangent each year. We voted to put together a “Night Out” basket for AITC auction. We’ve got a great group of ladies of all ages and its fun to get together and make things happen!
