Many win at MUMS 4-H Foods Day gathering

MIDDLEBURY — Forty-one Addison County 4-H’ers participated in the Addison County 4-H Foods Day at Middlebury Union Middle School, on Saturday, Feb. 24.

The event, sponsored by University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H in Addison County, was open to 4-H’ers, ages 5 to 18, enrolled in county 4-H clubs.
