4-H Safety Day

4-H Farm Bureau Safety Day 

It's that time of year again for the annual Hancock County 4-H Farm Bureau Safety Day.  This event is held every year at the  Hancock County 4-H Fairgrounds in the exhibit hall.  We take the 4-H kids  thru several stations of activities and topics that affect the safety of our youth of today.  The age range of the children are from kindergarten sometimes all the way to High School.  This annual event has been a tradition for 8 years and the kids look forward to it every year.

Last year the kids learned some basic first aid from our local Greenfield Fire Department.  They did some one on one activities and showed them how to set basic band aids.  One of the kids even got to wrap one on one of the firemen.  

Some of the other topics that were covered were bicycle safety and weather safety.  We had an officer from our local police department that is the traffic officer and he rides a bike everyday on his job. One of the most important topics he covered was the importance of wearing a helmet while riding a bike. We also had a representative from the national weather service and he gave helpful hints on what to do when a storm hits in your area.   
Grain bin safety was also covered and they showed the kids a slide of some very important information to watch out for when they see a grain bin around their home or at a friends/family property.

At the end of the event the kids were treated to pizza party and also they each received a free safety day t-shirt.  These items are sponsored by our local Hancock County Farm Bureau.  Also, the 4-H club with most members in attendance received money for a free pizza party for their club at a future meeting.  
This years Safety Day will be held April 8, 2017.  We have several wonderful topics this year too and are hoping we have several returning members and some new too.

Day One

Well I have done it! I have created a what do I do?? I hope to figure it all out so you can see all the great people and children I have been busy taking pictures of. I love being able to capture their memories and chapters in each one of their lives. I have especially enjoyed the babies I have gotten to do this winter. They are so precious. I hope you enjoy what I want to share!

Helpful Hints to making your photo session great!

When would be the best time for us to get our photos taken?

The best time to take outside pictures is early morning or later in the afternoon to try and avoid shadows

How long does it take to see my proofs?

I do proofs online which should cut the time for viewing to just a week. Then I will email you your link for you to share with family and friends.

What can I expect from my session?

FUN! We want to make this a wonderful experience for you!

What kind of things can I bring?

Hats, friends, pets, uniforms, musical instruments, hobbies, sunglasses, your car, letter jackets, etc. Whatever makes you unique.

What about hair, make up and glasses?

Bring glasses without frames if possible. Give a haircut or hairdo a couple of days to relax and grow out. Guys, remember to have a fresh shave. Gals, use slightly more make up, but don't overdo it.

What if it rains?

Go ahead with your indoor session as planned and we will do the outdoor session another day. Overcast days are just as good as sunny ones.
