When Does Something Become “History”?

The National 4-H History Preservation team was recently asked to create a “Contemporary 4-H History” exhibit at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

this new exhibit was showcased at the National 4-H Hall of Fame and National 4-H Heritage Club event on October 8, 2010 at the Center. So we don’t forget to conserve recent history, this exhibit will focus on national events, programs and happenings over the past 10 years. The new exhibit is housed in a showcase in the hallwlay of J.C. Penney Hall between the J.C. Penney Room and the Ken Anderson Gallery.

Think about creating a similar exhibit in your community, county or state as a way to keep 4-H history current as well as saving the important elements for the future.
