COTTONWOOD The Annual Idaho County 4-H party was held Saturday, April 22, at the Cottonwood Community Hall. More than 200 4-H members and their 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 kick-off 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, cake walk, guessing games and hoop shoots.
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. Special thanks to Idaho/Lewis County Cattle Association members for doing the cooking and the Idaho County Fair Royalty for their help.
