      The business men of the city of Rivor-Falls cooperated splond-
 idly in helping make this on onjoyable day, not only in giving us
 the facilities of their fine park, but by contributing a large part
 of the dinner and supper, and helping prepare and servo those meals.
 This certainly was a fine gesture on their part and was appreciated
 by all who participated in the deiy'0 activities. Prizes for the
 various contests wore also furnished by those same business men.
 Mr. Varnoy and Miss Amundson, assistant state club leaders, assist-
 od us with the program for the day.
                            4-H Round-Up
      The annual 4-H round-up was held in connection with the Glen-
wood Fair August 11, 12, and 13. The round-up is the one chance
the 4-H members have of putting on public display the results of
their project work. Over 200 club members exhibited their various
phases of project work in the club department, winning a total of
$60O in premium money. Forty club members took advantage of the
facilities which we provided for them and ate their meals at our
camp dining hall and slept at the dormitories. This arrangement
always meets with the approval of the parents because they have
the assurance that their boys and girls are getting a well-balanced
diet and are properly housed and chaperoned.   While the 4-H round-
up is not the only incentive for club work, it certainly helps pro-
mote club work because club members have a chance to display their
project work so that the public might see it, .nd also have v
chance to win some premium money for work well done.

the State and encourage club members within the county to strive
for the quality of exhibit reached at the State Fair.
