      Local organization honors members, volunteers

      This weekend Adair County 4-H held its member and leader dinner and recognition ceremony.

      This weekend Adair County 4-H held its member and leader dinner and recognition ceremony.

      The event was held Saturday at the Kirksville Middle School where nearly 200 gathered to enjoy a potluck-style dinner, before honoring and recognizing many individual's involvements.

      Michelle Klem, University of Missouri Youth Development Specialist , says she's been with 4-H for 23 years and the organization has been hosting the event since she's been a part.

      "This is the time of year when we come together to reward our members and our volunteers for the involvement and successes they've reached in the 4-H program," said Klem.

      The meal was provided by members and volunteers of 4-H, and Farm Credit Services donated the paper products.

      The organization gives many scholarships for educational conferences.
