Minute Milkers 4-H club celebrating 70 years

Kids are happily tossing handfuls of candy out to the crowd as the adults and leaders smile and wave. It’s the second parade they’ve been in this summer, and at each parade, their float is adorned with cutouts of farm animals and a large barn, as well as signs in the back stating the group’s 70th-year anniversary.

The Minute Milkers 4-H Club, founded in February 1948, began with leaders Royce Hendrix (leader) and Earl Hoppens (assistant leader). When the club first came into existence, members were of Fairfield; however, members are now from Fairfield, Deweese, Edgar, Glenvil, and Clay Center.

When it first began the club had seven members, three of which were Lloyd Valentine, Jenelle Fitzke, and Duane Schliep.

Sindelar joins Clay County Extension staff

2001 Lincoln High School graduate to serve as Extension Educator working in all areas of cropping

BY TORY DUNCAN

Childhood experiences on his father’s family farm led Michael Sindelar to the world of Extension education, according to Sindelar, a 2001 graduate of Lincoln High School.

“My father’s family farm is what eventually led me to the field that I’m in,” Sindelar said. “I was born and raised in Lincoln, but my exposure to the family farm that my father grew up on gave me the direction that I eventually came to.”

Sindelar, after a five-year stint in the United States Navy from 2005 to 2010, graduated with an undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, while this past May, Sindelar earned his master’s degree in Agronomy, also from UNL.
