Preparing for success at the fair begins far before the summer months for 4-H youth. Community members from Shawano County, Wisconsin recently spent a Saturday morning helping young 4-H’ers begin preparing fair projects. On January 6, youth from all over the county gathered at Shawano High School for the 10th annual Shawano County 4-H Super Saturday event. The 280 participants spent the day engaging in a variety of workshops learning crafts like cake decorating, leather crafting and receiving training in leadership and officer duties. 

Heidi Pettis, a GreenStone appraiser of the Clintonville branch and a member of the Shawano County community, took her knowledge of canning foods to Shawano High, running a salsa-making workshop for the event. As a lifelong member of 4-H, and now a leader at the county level, Heidi warmly embraced the chance to invest in the youth.

“It is a beneficial opportunity for the kids. They are able to learn about various crafts they can practice before the fair that they may not otherwise have the chance to be exposed to either at home or in school. They especially liked when they could take their work home with them – the salsa,” Heidi says.

GreenStone is committed to advancing agriculture of today and tomorrow by giving back to rural communities helping them grow and thrive.
