Levy 4-H roundup Saturday

-A A +A

 Special to the Citizen

Each year the Levy County 4-H opens its year by having a "Roundup."  Roundup marks the official first day of the 4-H year for Levy County youth and volunteers. This year it will be on Aug. 27.

The morning will begin at 8 a.m. with the Hartley Barbeque contestants registering to compete for making the best barbeque chicken. There are three age categories and the winners receive checks and awards. For more information on the Barbecue contest, contact Muriel or Lacy at 352-486-5131.

At about 10 a.m., project book displays will be set up and all youth and adults will be able to see the project areas offered by the Levy County 4-H. There will be displays made by each of the 4-H Clubs in Levy County. The clubs will be displaying what their club offers and the activities their club participated in last year.  

Levy County 4-H is open to all youth ages 5-18 (as of Sept. 1, 2010) without regard to race, creed, color, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations.  

All adults wishing to help individual clubs or specific activities are encouraged to attend and see what each club has to offer. There are also county-wide clubs offering demonstrations and the opportunity to sign up and help out with the activities and events.

The morning will culminate with a barbeque chicken lunch provided by the Levy County 4-H.
