            Members of 4-H clubs from Stillwater County, as well as guests from other areas, met for a family fun night in Columbus recently. The kids and their families raise money through the event every year to purchase awards given at the July fair.

 

Last Saturday night, 4-H clubs from all over Stillwater County presented their annual Family Fun Night at the fairgrounds in Columbus, Montana, attracting over 360 attendees.

At 4 p.m. Nov. 2, members from different clubs were busy setting up booths and fun activities inside the Columbus Pavilion. Clubs participating in this fundraiser event included Park City Wranglers, Johnny’s Buckaroos, and Rapple Jacks and Jills, among others.  

Starting at 5 p.m. and lasting for three hours, options for admission were either one dollar, a canned food item or a coat. Tickets cost .25 each, and all booths required either one or two tickets for participation, including ring toss, mini basketball hoop,

football throw, bottle fishing,

corn hole, skee ball, a “jail” and a booth offering temporary glitter tattoos plus other carnivalstyle attractions, as well as a silent auction and a concessions stand.

Reita Reiter, a leader of the Park City Wranglers 4-H club since 2014, said that her favorite booth is the ring toss, which allowed each person ten tries for one ticket for a chance to win a bottle of pop.  “I think it’s good for all the kids to get together at this event and meet kids from other clubs, because we are all so spread out. That way, when the kids get to fair, they’ve already gotten to know each other,” said Reiter, who added that her husband has been involved in 4-H since childhood, as well as their three children.

Heather Burns, from Billings, was at Family Fun Night for her third year, bringing her three children plus one of their friends. “They always look forward to it every year,” said Burns.

All of the money raised will go to the Stillwater Council, and helps to pay for awards given at the fair in July each year.  4-H is a nationwide program helping young people become productive citizens by developing useful skills and participating in community service.
