4-H Ambassadors speak at Wautoma Kiwanis meeting

The Wautoma Kiwanis Club welcomed sisters Hannah and Catelyn Olsen as their speakers Jan. 3 at Silvercryst. Hannah and Carelyn are 4-H Ambassadors along with the 4-H Agent Heidi Hensel-Buntrock. Hannah told the Kiwanis club that she showed Short Horn Breed of Beef Cattle in 4-H and explained all the different ways she was involved in 4-H. Hannah also spoke about all she has learned in 4-H, such as being a good public speaker. She has also learned the correct and importance of filling out application and scholarships the proper way. She has been involved in different aspects of running large fundraising events with 4-H and leadership skills that will help in her future. Hannah graduated from Berlin High School and is currently a Senior at UW-Black River Falls. Her long term goal is to get her PhD in Animal Science. Her sister Catelyn, a Sophomore at Berlin High School, is involved in sewing with the 4-H and started making bandana’s for dogs to wear at local animal shelters on adoption days. This is one of the ways she helps make a difference in her community. Catelyn said 4-H is also helping her to feel much more comfortable with public speaking. 4-H has been a big part of the girls life, and 4-H benefited from having them in the club, too. At the end, they recited the 4-H pledge. Guests are always welcome at any Wautoma Kiwanis Club meeting. To find out more information, go to their website www.wautomakiwanis.wixsite.com/kiwanis.
