Twenty-one youth from throughout Lincoln County were at the Tomahawk Middle School on Saturday, March 17th where they participated in a variety of 4-H project sessions as part of Project Discovery Day. Youth participated in session on topics such as archery, basket weaving, dance, model horses, painting, robotics, scale models and visual arts.
