2 I The Lovell Chronicle I March 18, 2010 www.LovellChronicle.com 4-H Carnival, Ag Expo this week BY KARLA POMEROY In. observance of Na- tional Ag Week and Ag Day, the UWCES is host- ing its annual Ag Expo for Big Horn County third and fourth graders at the Big Horn County Fairgrounds Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. During a meeting with the Big Horn County Com- missioners Tuesday, Ag Ed- ucator Dallen Smith talked about the ag expo and the importance of teaching the area youth about where our food and clothing comes from. He said last year one child, after visiting the cow milking booth, said, "I don't get my milk from a cow, I get it at the store." Dave Caldwell, a teach- er from Greybull, said last year was his first experience at the Ag Expo. He told the commissioners that he was "real impressed" with the event. "Even though we're a fairly rural area, there are a lot of kids who know where food and clothes come from and what the benefits of ag- riculture are. If we lose ag- riculture in America we'd be in a world of hurt, far more than if we lose oil somewhere else," Caldwell said. Big Horn County 4-H is hosting its annual carnival on Saturday with a theme of Mardi Gras. The carni- val runs from 6-8 p.m. at the Big Horn County Fair- grounds in Basin. The community is wel- come to join the 4-Hers, parents, leaders and coun- cil members for an evening of ftm. For further informa- tion, call the 4-H office, 765- 2868.

Everyone is welcome to attend Tuesday's meeting. Relay For Life kick-off rally March 30 Hoping to build on the momentum generated by last summer's event, the Big Horn County Relay for Life planning committee has already scheduled its 2010 kickoff rally. Lovell's kickoff is Tuesday, March 30, at 6 p.m. at the Lovell High School library, 502 Hampshire Ave. The American Cancer Society Big Horn County Relay For Life is set for July 30-31, at the Lovell High School athletic field. Last year's event saw 15 teams from throughout the coun- ty raise more than $36,759 for the Society. In 2008, the county raised $50,531 and in 2007, $22,547 was raised. "We had 79 cancer sur- vivors walking the ceremo- nial opening lap last year. That's proof the money being raised through events such as Relay For Life is helping in the fight to find a cure for this terrible di- sease," committee member Denise Harrison said. The kickoff rally will give those who have been involved with Relay For Life in the past the oppor- tunity to learn about the innovations planned for the coming year and to of- fer any fresh ideas.
