Fantastic 4-H fashion

Members of the 4-H club strutted their stuff down the runway on Tuesday night in handmade clothes.
“The goal of the fashion show is to help the participants develop some sewing skills, project skills, that they can use later,” said April Dillon, 4-H development extension agent. “I don’t know how many adults can sew a button anymore.”
The fashion revue, held at the James W. Warren Citizens Center, featured three categories: cloverbuds, juniors, early teens and seniors.
Clothes took anywhere from four hours to a number of months to create.
First place winners were Summer Deaton, Karin Okonski and Holly Mills. Second place winners were Chelsea Mills and Emily Sherrill. Cayla Miller received a third place prize.
The event also included a talent show in which Guy and Joseph Perkins received first place, the Rising Sun 4-H’ers received second place and the 4-H Poultry Club received third place.
The show had a total of 28 4-H members participating.
“Our mission is to help children develop into successful, competent young adults,” said Dillon. “And we do that through help them develop life skills and subject matter skills.”
