Lake County 4-H members travel to Helen
News from Montana State University Lake County Extension
HELENA — 4-H members from across the state of Montana gathered in Helena recently to learn more about the legislative process at the Montanans for 4-H Legislative Program. Traveling from Lake County were 4-H Ambassadors Keergan and Landar Fangsrud, Philip and Hannah Vaughan, all of Saint Ignatius; Natalee Wheeler of Proctor; Anya Smith of Polson. Also attending were Ambassador Key Leader Amy Vaughan and MSU Lake County Extension Agent Nori Pearce.
MSU President Waded Cruzado shared her positive experiences with 4-H members and told about her beliefs in the land grant university system of which 4-H is an important part. The youngest member of a four-generation 4-H family shared her family’s story with the breakfast attendees.
The highlight of the trip was the Legislative Breakfast when state legislators joined the group. State Senator Janna Taylor (SD6) and State Representatives Greg Hertz (HD12), and Dan Salomon (HD93) joined the Lake County delegation for breakfast where all shared some of their experiences in the law making process.
Following the breakfast the group toured the State Capital building and learned more about the history of Montana, the legislative process, and some of the people who have been so instrumental in its development.
Thank you to the Lake County 4-H Council for making the trip possible.
