4-H Congress... Doggy style!

I was able to attend 4-H congress with my raiser this past month and boy was it an exciting adventure!
It's a week packed full of workshops, activities, interesting speakers, dances, presentations, honor club inductions, large crowds, and fun times with lots of 4-H friends!
My raiser was happy for me to get the experience of staying in a dorm for a week, and for being calm around huge loud crowds of people, ignoring food in the campus cafeteria, not being bothered by the extremely loud music at the dances, putting up with wearing a honor club sash all week, being quiet during long workshops, presentations & for speakers that we had - but most of all... having FUN!
My raiser was inducted into 4-H Honor Club the first night, and since she always has a dog on her side, they decided to let me wear a sash too!! 
On the second day my raiser had her presentation competition, she was very happy to win gold with her Farm Camp presentation!   
They even had a professional photographer take the honor club inductee photos and the presentation winners... and I was able to star in both pictures with my raiser :)

I had a wonderful time at 4-H congress and learned many new & exciting things... it was a great experience and I'm so glad I was able to attend with my raiser!

What is this "ignoring food" of which you speak?
You have a very difficult job.

Slobbers,

Wow you really got in on the activities Brandon! What an honor your raiser got and of course you deserved a sash too. Fun times...but you totally deserve a major treat after all of that restraint :)
