COTTONWOOD — The Annual Idaho County 4-H Party was held on Saturday, April 18, at the Cottonwood Community Hall. Nearly 200 4-H members and their families and friends gathered at this event which is a “Penny Arcade” intended to raise the awareness of the Idaho County 4-H Program and encourage youth and adults to participate in this youth development program. This event is also the kickoff for Idaho County 4-H Week.

Each of Idaho County’s 4-H clubs set up a booth at which chances to play cost from one to twenty-five cents. These booths offer a wide variety of games. Some of this year’s games included penny drops, roping and plinko.

The games concluded at noon with a free hamburger barbecue lunch served by the Idaho County 4-H Ambassadors. The Idaho/Lewis County Cattle Association provided the hamburger to barbecue and the Idaho County Wheat Growers Association also makes a donation to help offset the expenses for lunch. Thanks to Idaho/Lewis County Cattle Association members Ken and Bertie Forsmann, Ted Arnzen, Jack Pecarovich, Melissa Curry and Brandy McElroy for doing the cooking.
