COARSEGOLD — The rodeo was April 30 and May 1, and April 29 was Heritage day. At the rodeo our club had a snow cone booth, a Pepsi booth, and a petting zoo. We make the cotton candy that we sell ourselves. Kids from our club worked in those booths and in the petting zoo to raise money for our club. The snow cone and Pepsi booths and the petting zoo were open for all three of the days. These booths raised money for our club to help send kids to 4H camp, so if you come to the rodeo next year please stop and get a snow cone or a soda.
4H camp is coming up in June at Huntington Lake. It is full of fun activities like cake decorating, archery, science, hiking, cooking and arts and crafts. This will be my third time going and I enjoyed it very much, so if you want to join our club and go to camp next year, come to the next meeting, on the second Thursday of June.
Our leader is Pat Strimling and if you would like to join you can contact her at (559)683-5149. Anyone can join! You don’t have to go to Coarsegold school to be in Coarsegold 4-H. You can live anywhere in Madera county as long as you can come to our meetings.
