4-Hers named fair royalty
BY: Community Papers of WNY Staff | August 08, 2013
This year’s Royalty consists of a 16-year-old and 17-year-old who have been long term 4-H members in Niagara County.
Christopher Sweeney, an individual member, has been in 4-H for 10 years. As he became more involved in 4-H growing up, he said that it helped him become well rounded.
Currently active in Dairy Cattle, Sweeney also participates in food and nutrition, clothing and textiles and crafts. During this year’s Niagara County Fair, Sweeney worked at the Milk Bar, taught a dairy workshop and helped during the Little Britches contest. He sold Cow Chip Bingo tickets and 4-H candy to help fund-raise.
The son of John and Debi Sweeney, Sweeney is named to the 2013 Royalty.
Reggie Neadow, an individual member, has also been in 4-H for 10 years. Neadow participates in Dairy Cattle, Dairy Goats and fund-raising activities for 4-H programs.
“I could never imagine my life without 4-H. It has made me into a much more mature, understanding and helpful person,” Neadow said.
The daughter of Tim and Liz Neadow, she is named to the 2013 Royalty.
Throughout the next year, royalty will be active in promoting the 4-H program county-wide.
