The Woodville Trailbusters 4H Horse Club and Woodville Crafty Cats 4H Club are already working on props for their 7th Annual Haunted Trail Walk in October. This year, scenes will be about Ghostbusters, Plant Shop with many different flowers of all types, sizes and colors. Some may really like people, too. Doctor MacGregor has been experimenting in his garden with veggies. Shoot-out at the corral and cemetery with legendary outlaws. The torture chambers have an added feature. The Addams family will have some members visiting the walk.

The clubs are always looking for new members and just new friends of all ages. They meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 PM at 25 Winter Street in Hopkinton.

The horse club is working on their mounted drill team, which will be performing at the Annual Middlesex County 4H Fair in Westfield, MA on August 22, 23 and 24. Members will also be riding their mounts in the 3 day horse show. Some members will be in the Static Building with arts, crafts, needlework, sewing, photography, gardening, floral arrangements, scarecrows, veggies, woodworking, knitting and many more things. The fair is open to the public all three days and 4H would love to have as many people come to support its members as possible!

Checkerberry Acres Farm is running a camp this summer for 4 weeks in July on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to show kids what it's like to take care of chickens, ducks, rabbits and horses. Animals will be worked with every day, ponies and horses can be ridden if children wish to, and there will be games and crafts and a lot of fun! If animals and outdoors is not your thing, come and join us for the crafts and games after lunch. Regular camp is 10 AM-2 PM and costs $25 per day or $60 for all three days. Games and crafts are 12-2 PM and cost $10 per day.
