4-H Sizzlin’ Summer Sessions 2017 Recap

By: Meg Wyatt, Franklin County 4-H Agent

Franklin County 4-H had a busy and exciting summer. We had over 80 youth participate in 27 workshops and five overnight camps and conferences. This year with the help of several community partners we were able to offer our youth a glimpse into what real life careers look like. Some included but not limited to: bread making, sewing, career explorations at Burger 21, Franklin County Courts, and Capitol City Police, nutrition classes, canning, college campus tours, and so much more.

Our last 4-H Sizzling Summer Session was “Adulting 101: Things I need to know when I’m older.” We had the privilege of touring Pete Smith’s Tire and Quick Lube in Louisburg. The youth got a hands-on experience of checking oil, tire pressure, how to change a tire, and what to look for in car maintenance. We were then treated to a pork chop meal with the Shop Sauce. The 4-H’ers learned so much and walked away with knowledge about the auto mechanics career and knowledge to put forth in the future with their personal vehicles. Below are some of the photos from our day at Pete Smith’s.
