BURT, NEW YORK (June 29, 2016)-- Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County’s 4-H Youth Development Program sent two youth to the Western District Fashion Revue on June 4, 2016.
This year’s event was hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County’s 4-H Youth Development Program at the VanHorn Mansion in Burt, NY. The mansion, once the home of the VanHorn family, is now a historical landmark and is reportedly haunted.
4-Her’s from the Western District are selected at the county level to model their sewing creations at the district level. Western District Fashion Revue is an opportunity for youth to network with other 4-Hers and gain inspiration for next year’s projects.
4-Her’s and their families enjoyed lunch and a fashion show. Kendra Dorman and Shannon Heath of the Stockton Panthers 4-H Club accompanied by their leader Mary Dorman represented Chautauqua County at the event. Chautauqua County youths who were selected at the county fashion revue but could not attend the district event include Emily Brown, Elizabeth Comstock, Rachel Comstock, Mackenzy Graziano, Rachael Harper, Kaylee Hodge, Maggie King, Deona Sanders, Amelia Sprague, Lizzie Turner, and Melinda Waag.
The 4-H Youth Development Program is one of many programs offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County (CCE-Chautauqua). CCE-Chautauqua is a community based educational organization, affiliated with Cornell University, Chautauqua County Government, the NYS SUNY system, and the federal government through the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
