There were 22 proj- ects on display, representing the dill ferent interests of Walsh County 4- Hers. In this event, 4-H members set up an educational display to "tell a sto- ry" about a 4-H project they all en- rolled in, and then are questioned by judges on their knowledge of the subject. Walsh County 4-H'ers ere- atively represented projects from magnets, fishing and welding to foods, science discovery, crafts, health and horses. The tbltowing youth received high honors in their category. Win- ners will advance to the State Fair competition in July.

In addition to raising funds; lrvine said that he magesales, and the inflatable games in the park dur- able to take the cost down by switching to a compa- ing the Eourth of July. Now, the Community Club has taken over the Thurs- day nights in the park from the Extension Office fea- turing the Farmers Market and market meals, which area organizations use as fundraisers. "Without the Community Club, these things don't happen," Irvine said. Free inflatable games started in 2010, prior to that First United Bank and Polar Communications hosted "Kidde" games in the Little Park and the city sponsored the petting zoo. This year, as funds were running low, the possibil- ity of offering the free t tmily activity was in question. The club decided on a 50/50 raffle as a quick way to generate the necessary nding to ensure the games would go on. Rewards include $2,500 for first prize, $ 1,000 for second prize, and $500 for third. The drawing will be done at the rodeo. Irvine said that they also hope to do ny out of Hatton, N.D., that offered inflatables at a dis- counted price as long as the commtmity could offer vol- unteers to supervise the event. The overall rallying cry tbr the community is a need for volunteers. There currently is no tbnnal committee arranging Fourth of July needs, but anyone willing to offer even an hour of time is encouraged to call the City of Park River office to match availability with need. Irvine added that this is a good opportunity tbr students look- ing to add community service volunteer hours to their resumes. One of the biggest challenges is that those who have volunteelld their time in the past Ibr various events have been doing so for many years. Support from a new gen- eration is needed to continue. "People take for granted that these things are just going to show up," Irvine said. with Your classified ad will appear in all 90 North Dakota daily and weekly newspapers for only newspaper or 1,866.685-8889 for details HELP WANTED CITY ADMINISTRATOR - SPEARFISH, SOUTH DAKOTA City of Spearfish is accepting applications for a City Administrator.
