Dunn attends 4-H Capital Days in Harrisburg

By Stefanie Arblaster, website editor

On April 1 through April 3, junior Patrick Dunn attended the 2017 Pennsylvania 4-H Capital Days in Harrisburg. Capital Days is a three day program for 4-H members ages 14-18 to enhance their knowledge on Pennsylvania state government.

Among numerous other activities, Dunn and many other 4-H’ers from across the state came together to learn about parliamentary procedure. They learned how the procedure can help them within a 4-H meeting. “It’s a great tool to use. It’ll help us problem solve and run the meetings more efficiently,” Dunn said.

  They participated in ice breaker challenges, which helped the group grow familiar with each other, attended a dance hosted by the program at the Hilton Hotel, explored the state capitol building, and even ate with the state senators.

“It was a really great experience, I learned a lot and I would definitely go back.” Dunn said.
