by Jake O’Neill, Club Reporter:
My name is Jake O’Neill and I am this year’s Coarsegold 4-H reporter. Coarsegold 4-H was at Heritage Days. We collected donations for our club and we also brought a rabbit named Ms. Pepper, and a goat. Both of the animals were on demonstration for the community to handle or pet.
We handed out flyers to encourage more kids to join Coarsegold 4-H. Pat Sturling is training Kiki King to become one of our club leaders.
I interviewed Xavier Gonzalez on what he is doing this year in 4-H and he replied with poultry, trap shooting, archery and bio security.
