A 4-H Celebration

Renfrew County 4-H had a reason to celebrate on Saturday.  We honoured a special lady who has work tirelessly for her community for many, many years.  Lynn Clelland joined 4-H at the age of 12 and when she 'graduated' from being a 4-H member at the age of 21...she became a 4-H leader.  Over the years, she has been involved in all aspects of 4-H...from writing programs to serving on the board.

Lynn has taught my children how to square dance through the 4-H Square Dancing Club.  She was also their leader for the 4-H Farm Safety Club.  She has probably saved many lives over the years because she has taught many, many children how to be safe on the farm.

Not only is she involved in 4-H, but she is a true community lady.  She has volunteered with her church, the local school and she helped turn a local one room school house into a living museum.

On Saturday, she was presented with the Syngenta 4-H Ontario Arbor Award.  The 4-H Leadership Club was given the task of organizing the entire event.  These young adults did an amazing job. 

They included some square dancing in the program....

And then they made a square with 16 of us!  I don't have any photos because I was in the square! 

There was a hemlock tree planted in her honour.


And then there were treats!  Lots of treats....cakes and cookies!

They asked me to make the decorated cake for the event....


Congratulations Lynn!
