Emma Johnson, Jof Deckler and Tyler Hockaday returned from their Junior National Young Leaders Conference March 5 to 10 in Washington, D.C. They visited the White House, Capitol Hill and the war memorials and participated in focus groups to build leadership and other skills.
There was a big turnout for the Hayden Lions Club's annual St. Patrick's Day corned beef and cabbage dinner. The food was good, and many spent extra time visiting with folks they hadn't seen during the winter months. Everybody said the same thing: They can't wait for winter to end.
Several 4-H members and their chaperones headed to Glenwood Springs for the district retreat. Attendees were Belle and Abby Horn, Mallory Hoots, Mariah and Alex Bryant, Michaela and Danielle Villa, Morgan Palyo, Cole and Mackenzie Carnahan, Anna Brown, Richard Hallenbeck, Shealynne Yeager, Natalie Morton and Hallie Myhre, Shannon and Nate Regan and Raley and Sam Shaffer. Chaperones included Routt County Extension agents Cassidy Kurtz and Karen Massey, and parents Donna Mae Hoots and Wendy Villa.
