Union County 4-H Starts the Summer with a Bang

Union County, NJ – The Union County 4-H clubs got an early jump on summer on Saturday, June 4 during the annual 4-H Project Day, held at the Trailside Nature and Science Center in Mountainside. Pictured here, Julia Lachenauer of Cranford (l.) and Christian Kelly of Westfield observe the eruption of a “soda volcano” created by the 4-H Lego Club. Other projects included photography, model making, arts and crafts, and home grown plants. The fun included educational games and demonstrations, and the 4-H Teen Council sold refreshments to raise funds for the homeless. 4-H is open to all Union County boys and girls from 1st through 12th grades. For more information contact Union County 4-H agent James Nichnadowicz, 908-654-9854 (Photo: Ben Foresti, 4-H Photography Club).
