Favorite 4-H Projects and memories

State Fair 2020 Cancelled
Gary and Friends of Dunseith Alumni,
I know many people in the past, attended the ND State fair for years.
Many of folks, ( like you Gary and your family in the Mountaineers 4-H club )
were especially involved in the long tradition of 4-H.
My family never became involved in 4-H. I never attended a state fair until an adult.
But, whilst in Montana I was invited to judge speech competition for the County 4-H competition.
That experience left me with quite an impression of this worthy Family & Parent involved organization.
I wonder if you, your brother Bud, or other former members have some favorite 4-H memories?
Quoting Bob Hope, “Thanks for the Memory.”

4-H was a big part of my childhood days. My mother, Elaine Stokes along with Mary Ann Hagen and Dorothy Lamb organized the Mountaineers 4-H club. With their first meeting they agreed to ask Orvin Hagen if he would volunteer to be the 4-H leader for the boys of which he accepted for a term that lasted more than 25 years.
For those of you that were in 4-H in your growing up days, please share some of your experiences with us. In the Article write up with my picture below, I see Holly Meyer of the Busy Beaver 4-H club got first place in clothing.
One of my favorite 4-H projects was My Registered Black Angus Heifer named Missy. I purchased her when she was about a month old with money, I earned from my summer Jobs working for Norris Knutson and Carl Melgaard. She was raised on Ground Oats that I purchased by the gunny sacks at the Bottineau Elevator. I worked with her, under Orvin’s leadership, teaching her how to lead and stand for showmanship. Following the 4-H Achievement Day in 1963 pictured below, I entered Missy in the Valley city Winter Show. Orvin Accompanied me to Valley City. We hauled her to Valley city in Orvin’s Pickup. That was a real experience going there too. The competition was pretty tough there, so we didn’t place very high, but the experience was fun. The following summer of 1964 I sold Missy at a 4-H Auction.
