2009 Harrison County 4-H Style Revue

By Bill Roberts

2009 Harrison County

4-H Style Revue

The 2009 Harrison County 4-H Style Revue will be held Friday, April 17 at 7 p.m. at the Harrison County High School.  The Style Revue is the end result of a tremendous amount of work and time by the leaders and 4-H’ers of the 4-H Crocheting, Knitting, and Sewing Projects. Without the dedication of these 4-H leaders of their time, efforts, and talents, many of the young ladies involved would not have the opportunity to learn clothing construction skills, develop self confidence, poise, and modeling skills.

The Style Revue theme for 2009 is “A Century of 4-H Fashion.” Modeling training will be done by Harrison County clothing leaders and senior 4-H Clothing project members. The training and garment check-in will be done Wednesday, April 15 after school at the Harrison County Extension Center.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend. Plan to come to the Style Revue to recognize the accomplishments of the 4-H members and their leaders.

It is state law that all hunters born in 1975 or later and all youth 12 years of age or older pass the Kentucky Hunter Safety Course before they can hunt in Kentucky.  The exact time for the range certification will be announced at the Monday night session. It is important that all children and adults have training on the safe use, storage, and handling of firearms. Ask your mom or dad to come with you to this training.
