Many young people from Cumberland Countys 4-H clubs will converge on Windsor for pro show on Sept. 28-30. The Double D club is busily readying its livestock and life skills displays.

At the ex all the projects are together but down at pro show they are separated into different places, said Double D leader Sharlene Carter-Earle. So we have to do a lot of extra stuff to cover all those.

This years 4-H theme is A Lasting Impression, and Double D configured its displays around the past, present and future. One panel focused on 1922, while another depicted present-day 4-H and a third showed their version of 4-H in 2122.

We had a little cow flying a spacecraft, and we made up projects for 2122, such as organic food production, computer, space travel, natural fuel sources, and alternative food sources. We had fun with it.

Pro show will conclude a busy year for Double D, which included a Christmas party, sleigh ride, farm tours, a skating night, car wash, achievement day and visit to Magic Mountain. The club is now preparing for the launch of its new season, which it will do with a meet and greet night at Emmanuel United Church on Hickman Street on Oct. 21. Anyone interested in finding out more is encouraged to drop by.

Meanwhile, the rest of the county clubs are also getting ready for another year in 4-H, and are always welcome to new members. The Cumberland clubs are Ro-Win-Lea in Springhill (Geoff Baldwin, 686-3021), Sunrise in Truemanville (Tammy Smith-Gaudet, 667-2493), Three Way in Leicester (Sharon Siddall, 546-2598), Bay Vista Conns Mills in Pugwash (Karma Reid, 243-3290), Oxford (Alfred King, 447-2426), and Linden (Edna Foster, 661-4366).

Also available for information is Charles Smith, president of the Cumberland County 4-H Council, who can be reached at 661-4892.

The kids learn so much, its incredible, said Carter-Earle.
