  •  My, what a busy month. Where does the time go?  Carroll County Cooperative Extension was the host for the 4-H District 3 Variety Show and what a great program. 

    There were 10 contestants, seven from Kenton County, one from Pendle-ton County and two from Carroll County. The talent consisted of piano playing, violin, singing, guitar playing, tap dancing, and modern dancing.  Both of Carroll County’s contestants will go on to perform at the state fair in August. It is so wonderful to see our youth as they perform in front of an audience.
