The planning committee is accepting applications for vendors to sell their products or crafts. Vendor space is available for $30 for a single space. Vendors keep all profits from their booths, but they will be responsible for providing a doorprize.

Two Lackawanna County 4-H teens attended the recently held 4-H State Leadership Conference held at Penn State University. Hannah Conahan and Marikay Van Fleet, both members of the Glenburn 4-H Sewing Club, were among the 472 4-H teens who attended the educational conference.
The weekend event allowed 4-H teens to build and perfect their leadership skills. The skills that the teens developed relate to personal assets that research says make teens competent, capable, and caring adults. The weekend included communication techniques, team building, decision making, and goal setting. The highlights of the weekend included discussions by keynote speakers who are known throughout the country as top leadership educators in their respective fields.
