MOORE HAVEN, FLORIDA -- The annual 4H fundraiser dinner was held Saturday night August 5 at the Doyle Conner Building which was decorated in the theme �The Magic of the Orient.� Over 300 in attendance, mostly young adults-many former 4H participants and all the cream of the crop of Glades County, enjoyed a steak dinner, followed by the excitement of the lottery drawing for cash prizes, and a dance.
Ms. Shelley Humphries' efforts this year helped send 45 kids to Camp Cloverleaf and according to University of Florida IFAS 4-H Coordinator Lane Jamison, Glades County excelled over other Florida counties in attendance at camp.
The list of famous 4H alumni includes Faith Hill, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis, Pat Nixon, Dolly Parton, Johnny Carson, and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. Locally our distinguished 4H citizen, an alumnus of Moore Haven High School, and participant as a youth in Glades County 4H, is Ms. Humphries, who honors the pledge and works very hard to fulfill the motto. 4-H parents, please be sure to show your appreciation to Shelley, because your children will become better citizens because of her efforts.
