ECA Review/Submitted

Volunteers, family, friends and members of the Golden Prairie 4-H Multi-Club gathered together with family and friends at the Forestburg Community Hall on June 1 for Achievement Day to celebrate and show each other the skills they have learned from September to June.

Achievement Day is traditionally held by 4-H clubs for members to demonstrate everything they have learned and give recognition to volunteers, leaders and sponsors who have helped in various ways.

Golden Prairie 4-H Multi-Club encourages youth to be of service to their communities by volunteering in various ways such as helping other groups to set up for local events, tire recycling and hi-way cleanup.

Participants gain valuable skills by following the 4-H motto, to “Learn to do by doing” as they gain confidence with public speaking and self-esteem by accomplishing goals in each project.

Being a multi-club means they offer members a chance to learn by following a wide variety of projects such as Horse, Poultry, Archery, Voice, Outdoorsmen, Scrapbooking, Crafts, Cooking, Sewing and Busking.

The diversity of activities attracts members from all over the county of Flagstaff each year by offering activities that no one else is.

The club offers a Cleaver kids group for younger children between the ages six to eight.
