(Leroy) OK and can you tell me about your community club, what are some of the things you do with the Rossville club? (Teagan) We work the concession stands here at the Fair and stuff and then we have a flower sale every year. (Leroy) And what are you doing with the money you raise from the concession stand? (Teagan) We put it toward kids going to 4H camp and stuff like that, and for flowers for next year, or new flags or something like that. (Leroy) Are you going to camp this year? (Teagan) No, I decided not to. (Leroy) You’re too busy probably with your livestock projects aren’t you? (Teagan) Yea, I am. (Leroy) And what are some goals that you have for this year for your 4H?
