FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Freddie 4-H Nation club members shared their projects in a demonstration fair Monday at the Fredericktown Administration Building. The 48 members of the club have a variety of projects, a large number of livestock, sheep, beef, hogs and goats; and other projects ranging from money management, cooking, art, photography, robotics, rocketry and cake decorating.

The idea for a demonstration fair came after advisors attended a statewide 4-H meeting in Columbus. With 4-H clubs this large, it is the opportunity to show the public their projects. This is the second year of the fair and parents and relatives of the members attended to see the 4-H’ers accomplishments.

The club, now in its sixth year, started with eight members. Several names were suggested and the members chose Freddie 4-H Nation. The head advisor is Linda Montgomery. Other advisors are Nicky Gaddis, Tanya Newell and Heather Stewart.

Montgomery said the one day for demonstration works really well rather than have a few demonstration at regular meeting. The members can also work with advisors on the progress of their projects and to learn how to present themselves when they go before the judges June 26, at Mount Vernon High School.

There is also a Clover Bud group for youngsters from kindergarten through age 8. Their advisors are Melanie Small and Teri Rook. The club president, in her second year, is Abby Pozderac.
