The Messiah Lutheran Church
fellowship hall was a beehive of
activity on June 28 as 4-H mem
bers of Juniata, Mifflin, and Perry
counties demonstrated their sew

in her fifth year of 4-H and has an
11-week-old puppy, Orelle, in the
Seeing Eye Puppy 4-H Club.

ribbons were won by Shari Book
and Judy Geissinger of Juniata
County, Donna Fisher and Kim
McCalips of Mifflin County, and
