4-H Fashion Revue Attracts 50
Claremont — A recent 4-H fashion revue at Claremont Middle School attracted more than 50 4-H members, some of whom will go on to represent Sullivan County at a statewide 4-H event next month. About 190 friends and family members turned out to see the 4-H-ers sport their outfits — some original, some purchased — onstage.
The top advanced sewers were Anna Avery, of Claremont, and Annie Drye and Virginia Drye, of Plainfield. Their garments will be judged in the state 4-H Fashion Show at State 4-H Activities Day, set for May 31 at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The Intermediate II category winners — Clara Avery, of Claremont; Caleigh Plunkett, of Charlestown; and Rebecca Robertson, of Newport — will also have the opportunity to model their clothes in the show.
Intermediate I category winners were Cayla Carpia, of Claremont, and Hailey King and Morgan Snelling, both of Charlestown. In the Novice I category, Anna Numme, of Claremont, took first place, and Shelby Adams, of Newport, took second. Novice II winners were Stella Coulter-Duling, of Newport, and Rebekah Baker, of Charlestown.
Maria Luther-Houghton, of Acworth, and Erika Wilson, of Alstead, won the aprons and other items category.
In a separate category, “fashion selections,” 4-H-ers modeled outfits they had bought. The program aims to help young people explore strategies for getting the best value for their money. In first place was Alison Numme of Claremont; in second place, Selina Fowler, of South Acworth; in third, Brigitte Taylor, of Acworth; and fourth, Virginia Drye, of Plainfield. — Staff report
