LaRue County 4-H Agent Misty Wilmoth is looking for more information about a 4-H trophy engraved with dates from the late 1930s to the early 1940s.
According to Wilmoth, “a gentleman just moved into a house he bought in Louisville. In the basement, tucked away, he found this LaRue County 4-H trophy.  He contacted the previous owner of the home and they said they didn’t leave anything behind. He contacted the State 4-H Office in order to get in contact with LaRue County 4-H.  

My guess is that the trophy was for the Outstanding 4-H Club that was named each year.”

The engraving says:

LaRue County 4-H Clubs

Buffalo - 1935

Barren Run - 1936

Magnolia - 1937

Magnolia - 1938

Lyons - 1939

Lyons - 1940

Lyons - 1941

If you have any information about the trophy – or a memory – contact Wilmoth at the LaRue County Extension office at 270-358-3401.
