Ringling 4-H now has a volunteer Adult leader!  Parilyn Hairod is excited to rejuvenate Ringling 4-H.  She and her husband, Kent, with the assistance of Amanda Ridenour, set up a booth at Ringling Western Days Saturday, October 5.  We had tables set to show a few items Ringling 4-H members had made during the summer as well as information on how to enroll in 4-H.  There were also tables set up for youth and parents to come and paint a flower pot then, after it dried, planted a pansy flower in their flower pot.  57 youth participated and we are excited and hope to regain an active 4-H group in Ringling!
