Local 4-H group tours State Capitol; meets with State Rep. Raymer
Butler County 4-H members joined their counterparts across the state to take part in the 4-H Capitol Experience in Frankfort, Kentucky, on Tuesday, March 14. From Butler County, a group of 21 4-Hers, along with seven adults, toured the State Capitol, met with State Rep. Rebecca Raymer, got their photo made on the Senate floor, and then finished the day with a visit to the Kentucky Museum of History.
Brady Jones, a senior at Butler County High School and chairman of the Kentucky 4-H Performing Arts Troupe and communications board, sang "My Old Kentucky Home" in a 4-H recognition ceremony held in the Capitol Rotunda. Governor Andy Beshear spoke at the ceremony and praised the many positive benefits associated with the 4-H program.
Kiersten Foit, state reporter, who was unable to attend due to sickness, and Harmony Taylor, from the 4-H State Teen Council, helped to organize the event.
