Fashion Safari!

The Meeker County 4-H Fashion Review was held Tuesday, July 17, at Zion Lutheran Church in Litchfield. The Fashion Review Committee helped to plan this event. This year's theme was "Fashion Safari".

• Select suitable and becoming accessories and model with confidence a garment made to meet one's wardrobe needs.

• Develop good posture and grooming habits.

• Acquire knowledge and skills in planning, presenting, and participating in Fashion Review.
