Museum to celebrate 100 years of 4-H

The Lawrence County Museum will be a time machine for 4-H for more than a month.

"This is the 100th anniversary for 4-H," said Laura Murphy, a 4-H extension agent for Lawrence County. "It's also very special for us because 4-H began in Ohio."

The exhibit "Inspired by the Past, a Vision for the Future" is the work of two clubs, the Clodhoppers and the Lawrence County Copperheads. Starting

tomorrow, memorabilia will be on display from the past century. The display will feature newspaper articles,

pictures, awards, and extension reports, among other items. One of the extension reports dates back to 1917.

The museum will be open from 1 p.m.-5 p.m., and items will be on display until July 28. Amelia A. Pridemore/The Ironton Tribune
