N�� �� ��� 1 9 t h YEAR! ����� | S������ ���� ������-���� Denim N Dust 4-H members honored at Council meeting April 1 April 1 By Shanana Rain Golden-Bear At the March 28, 2023 Town Council meet- ing Quartzsite's Denim 'N Dust 4-H members were honored for receiving so many awards at the La Paz County Fair in March. Vice Mayor Lynda Goldberg welcomed the group saying, "The 4-H members did such a great job at the County Fair and we are so proud of them. We brought in the 4-H members to display their ribbons, buckles, and projects." Nancy Nichols of Quartzsite Improvement As- sociation (QIA) presented a check for $500 to the club. She said, "It's exciting to see you all here and good job! Thank you for all your hard work!" Quartzsite Police Chief Clay Romo said, "I've spent many years participating in 4-H. The club here in Quartzsite represents the town very well. There were a lot of local businesses that spon- sored some of the awards for the Round Robin. Quartzsite stepped up to the plate to present awards. Lieutenant Burnett and I wanted to do something different. During Buck Connors Western Days we participated and barbecued 96 pounds of meat. We raised $1,158 for the Denim N Dust 4-H and Dave Barber. Next year we plan on raising more!" Vice Mayor Goldberg closed by stating that she is hoping some of our 4-H members will be seated as council members in the future! Mayor Norm Simpson announced to the pub- lic, "Ladies and gentleman, you are looking at our present and our future!"
