  • Pictured here with the West Milford 4-H Velveteens are Councilman Lou Signorino and his family and Councilwoman Ada Erik, who came out to support the children's special night.

The West Milford 4-H Velveteens were among the more than 100 people who attended a celebration of the achievements of 4-H members throughout Passaic County at the Public Safety Complex in Wayne.

The West Milford Velveteens earned many awards over the year which were recognized at the awards dinner.

Mathew Bresnak and Murad Yassin earned one year appointments as official New Jersey State Nutrition Ambassadors.

The club earned multiple county-level awards this year, with "Best in Class" signifying the best work in the county in the following areas of study:

Project Record Book: Murad Yassin, "Planning a European Vacation"

Nutrition, Ariana Bos, Apple-Cranberry Pie

Poultry, Ariana Bos, Brahma Rooster

Environmental Science, Alligator Habitat: Cassie Commoreto

Fine Art: Wood Jewelry Box: Brendan Nager

Two Velveteen members, Rebecca Byrne and Brendan Nager, represented Passaic County and were honored with recognition on the NJ 4-H state level for their participation in New Jersey Teen Council. Each carried the Passaic County banner in the "Parade of Counties."

Ariana Bos became the youngest person in Passaic County licensed by the State of New Jersey to sell chicks.

The West Milford 4-H Velveteen Rabbit and Farm Club of Passaic County would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our many sponsors who have supported our endeavors and community service over the last year.
