Glacier View 4-H Club Makes First Appearance in 2015-2016 Year

The Glacier View 4-H club, a fledgling club operating in Coram, is excited to work together toward common goals and to gain new members

By Melina Baracker

Glacier View 4-H members from 8 to 16 years old juggled ballots and offices on Sept. 29. These youngsters were having a friendly competition for the club officers, and none left disappointed.

Once a month the Glacier View club gets together, and following a very official meeting, the members chow down on hamburgers, play games in the gravel, or create club projects.

“Every meeting, we have a blast,” 11-year-old Layla Baracker says. “It’s so cool to hang out with friends and learn so many new things. 4-H has been a great experience for me, and I recommend it to all kids my age.”

4-H, like Layla says, is a great organization for children and is also very affordable. It is a nationwide program and offers all kinds of activities like woodworking, livestock, babysitting, cooking, robotics, and more. Young people from ages 6 to 19 may join 4-H.

And it’s not too late to sign up! Simply contact Kelley Sue Bain at 862-5000 or come to the next Glacier View meeting taking place Nov. 5 at 4:30 p.m., at the Canyon Community Church Educational Building in Coram.
