The 4-H display made by the Germantown Busy Beavers on display at the Metamora branch of Illinois Prairie District Public Library.

Since March is National 4-H Month, the Woodford County Extension Office is sponsoring a 4-H Window Display Contest from March 5-10.  The Germantown Busy Beavers, a group of 11 young people led by Mary Ann Auer, is participating in this promotion with a display at the Metamora Branch of Illinois Prairie District Public Library.

Imagine…Believe…Achieve in 4-H is this year’s theme.  The club members show the progression of imagining themselves as an artist, a seamstress, an author, or an inventor; believing in the possibilities by taking the first steps to making it happen; and achieving results by displaying various projects in rocketry, beading, sewing, creative writing, arts, and horsemanship and the ribbons they have earned at the Woodford County Fair and the Illinois State Fair.  Qualities they have used or learned    as they worked toward their goals are listed in the display:  enthusiasm, responsibility, patience, thoroughness, diligence, initiative, dependability and creativity.

Go to the IPDPL web page at www.ipdpl.org to get an overview of the 4-H exhibit.  Then come to the library during the month of March to look over the display of the Germantown Busy Beavers.  While here, you may want to check out books on some of the various topics of interest.
