IMPERIAL-The City of Imperial held their City Council meeting Wednesday evening inside the local library. Mayor Geoff Dale presented a proclamation award to the 4-H All-Stars and to other participating 4-H members.
Council Members and the Mayor are proclaiming the second week of October as â€œNational 4-H Week.â€ Three different All-Star members took turns reading a speech about the different reasons 4-H is important and fun for children of all ages.
â€œWhen I was in 4-H in 1984 I got the Reserve Supreme Grand Champion award and Tim Holbrook took Supreme Grand Champion. Â I donâ€™t think Imperial has had a clean sweep since then, hopefully you guys will accomplish that this upcoming year,â€ Mayor Dale said about the top two awards for market at the California Fair and Fiesta.
Local 4-H members and their families filled the room is support of the proclaimation. The visitors also waited to hear the full agenda for the upcoming SCORE Challenge that will be taking place locally on September 25 thru to the 28th.
