Send a link to a friend

[October 15, 2008]  The Wide-A-Wake 4-H Club hosted the Logan County 4-H International Night program at the Logan County Extension building on Monday. Approximately 90 youth, parents and club leaders enjoyed a variety of foreign foods and table displays.

Max Buse welcomed everyone and also gave the invocation. Sam Buse introduced the speaker.

DonutsSeokjin "Andrew" Hong, a foreign exchange student from South Korea, was the guest speaker. He is currently attending Lincoln Community High School and staying with the Darrell Vermeire family through International Student Exchange Programs. Seokjin is 15 years old, plays the flute and is a member of the marching band at LCHS. He dressed in his traditional Korean clothes and presented a slide show covering Korean history. Afterward he answered many different questions from the audience.

Five 4-H clubs participated in the International Night program this year. The Chester 4-H Club represented Brazil; 4 Corner Clovers focused on Germany; The Hollanders highlighted Mexico, The Pioneers represented Italy; and Wide-A-Wake chose Mexico. In order to learn more about their chosen country, each club prepared displays and foods focusing on the country they chose.

The objectives for the evening were to learn something about a foreign country, make a display of what each 4-H club learned, speak briefly about the display, prepare enough food from the country of their choice to feed the number of people coming from each group, and tell the group prior to the meal what they would be eating.
