Five youth members of the 4H Marengo Rangers Homeschool Club had the privilege of attending the annual Mid-Winter Teen Leadership Retreat on the weekend of February 8-10 at the 4-H Center in Columbiana.
The theme of this year’s retreat was “Sweet Home Alabama.” The attendees were Sara Watson, Miriam Wilson, Joseph Wilson, Tabitha Wilson and Adam Lamb as well as chaperone and volunteer club leader Lorena Wilson. Joseph Wilson is also a member of the 4-H State Council, whose members plan and implement the annual event.
4-H’ers enjoyed learning more about Alabama history, taste testing sweet potatoes for Tuskegee Institute, building rockets and interacting with other 4-H members from around the State.
Saturday evening culminated with a formal banquet and dance.
“The weekend was a great opportunity, and the teens thoroughly enjoyed it,” Miriam Wilson said.
