Our Grandview 4H Chapter has been working REALLY HARD! We had 10 Cloverbuds (ages 5-8) and 5 Junior 4H (ages 9-18) that were chosen to bring their prepared dish to the Stephens County Cook Off. Cloverbuds could enter 1 recipes, but Juniors could enter as many as they wanted (with the knowledge that if their recipes were chosen for the Cook Off Finals, they would have to cook ALL recipes requested)! This was the first event for our Chapter, and we were all curious to see what it was about. Well, on the evening of Monday, November 2nd, we got to find out. The Cook Off Finals were held in Duncan at the Stephens County Fair and Expo Center. Wow! There was so much food! Amazing displays and smells filled the room! We are very proud of our Grandview 4H Chapter. They represented our school and our chapter very well. All of the Cloverbud participants were recognized with Certificates of Participation and a spatula. Two of our Juniors won 1st Place in their category! How wonderful! Below are a few pictures from that evening.

We currently have 29 members. Not too bad for a new chapter! We're thrilled to have such a large group. We've also begun a few fundraising efforts in order to build up some money in our account so that we can do crafts, activities, and take the kids on short trips. We're very thankful for the support of our parents. Without you, we couldn't do all we've done already! After the Cook Off, 17 of our members decorated pumpkins for the Pumkin Decorating Contest in October. While our chapter didn't have any pumpkins that placed, they sure were adorable! Check them out below!
