CAMP MINCO - Mineral County 4-H member Candra Delsignore wanted to do something big for her senior project this year.
She decided to take the lead to replace the Council Circle at Camp Minco.
“4-H Camp and the evening Council Circles around the campfire were the highlights of my summers over the years,” says Delsignore. “The past few years the benches in the circle have been sinking because the posts are rotting. It was time to replace the Council Circle.”
Candra is working with the Mineral County 4-H Leaders Association and different community volunteers to make it happen. WVU Potomac State College students with the Agriculture and Forestry Clubs removed the old Council Circle this past fall.
“We wanted to build a more solid structure that would last, so we have decided to use concrete block structures for the bench supports instead of wooden posts, says Delsignore. “The costs are more, but it will be worth it in the future.”
The goal is to finish the Council Circle by April, 1, 2019. “We have had success with grants and fundraisers, however, donations are still needed to fully cover the project costs,” says Delsignore.
The WindForce grant program awarded the project a $5,000 grant this past fall.
If you are interested in supporting this project, checks can be made payable to the Mineral County 4-H Leaders Association, and mailed to the WVU Mineral County Extension Service, 541 Harley O. Staggers Drive, Suite 2, Keyser, WV 26726. Donations are tax deductible.
Candra Delsignore is a ten-ear member of the Sunnysider’s 4-H club. She will graduate from Keyser High School in the spring and plans to go to WVU Potomac State College in the fall of 2019.
