is National Library month
The Annual Idaho County 4-H Party was held on Saturday, April 13, 2013, at the Cottonwood Community Hall. 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 may include penny drops, cookie decorating, face painting, bingo, and roping.
The games concluded at noon with over 250 4-H members and leaders enjoying a free hamburger barbecue lunch served by the Idaho County 4-H Ambassadors. The Idaho/Lewis County Cattle Association provided the hamburger for Scott & Judy Scriber to BBQ and the Idaho County Wheat Growers Association also makes a donation to help offset the expenses for lunch.
