The St. Mary 4-H Clubs will be staging their Annual Achievement Day function, at the Oracabessa High School on Tuesday, April 7, commencing at 9:00 a.m.
Most of the parish’s 87 4-H Clubs are expected to participate in the day’s activities, which will feature several competitive events, such as sandwich making, cake baking and decorating, agro processing, rabbit care and management, poultry care and management, public speaking, budding and grafting, circumposing and potting, and the St. Mary 4-H Clubs Boy and Girl of the Year contest.
In addition to these activities, there will be displays by various Government and private agencies and entities, a lunch hour concert and several other attractions, including bounce-a-bout and trampoline.
Among the agencies which will be setting up display booths are the Scientific Research Council (SRC), the Ebony Park HEART Academy, the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), and the Jamaica Library Service.
The theme for the event is: ‘Youth Response to Food Security’, and one area of major focus during the activities will be utilising carrot for agro processing.
In an interview with JIS News, 4-H Parish Development Officer for St. Mary, Charlene Edwards-Butler, said all arrangements are in place for a successful day of activities. She said the participating clubs have been fully mobilised for the event, with all their projects being prepared for the occasion.
Paying tribute to the teachers and community leaders who have played an instrumental role in preparing the clubs for the show, Mrs. Butler exhorted residents of St. Mary to support the event and continue to provide encouragement to 4-H clubbites in their quest to become independent and responsible citizens.
