Dragons Are Too Seldom Puppet Theater


'The Great Water Crystal'

The children were all ears for Dragons Are Too Seldom Puppet Theater production. Puppeteer, Markie Scholz, wrote the script, created puppets and was a one woman (multiple puppet) show that entertained the audience.

“The Great Water Crystal” is the story of  Bob Bobcat and Millie Rabbit, two reluctant heroes.  They have been selected out of all the animals to return the Great Water Crystal to their beautiful valley before it becomes a desert. The Great Water Crystal is the source of all the water in the valley, the rain, the streams even the morning dew.

Trouble is, Pirate PeeWee Fox and his Terrible Assistant Flynn the Fast-footed Ferret have stolen the Water Crystal and taken it to the Seven Seas.

Millie and Bob must learn to work together to bring the water crystal back to the valley if it is ever going to rain again.

The Great Owl, Clyde the Crab, Noreen the Sea Gnome and, of course, Zed the Dragon all help our heroes to bring rain and the water crystal back home.

~Each individual’s strength helps achieve the goal.

The Butte/Lawrence County 4-H Public Speaking

Butte/Lawrence County 4-H Public Speaking contest was held this May at the Whitewood Public Library.

The 4-H public speaking program is one of the premier offerings that 4-H members participate in. Through the speaking program they develop communication skills that they use for the rest of their lives. Many former speakers have looked back fondly on their memories and opportunities that they had through 4-H.


The 4-H Cloverbud Program offers a wide variety of activities and experiences, in a non-competitive environment, encourages children to explore and think about the world around them.

4-H Cloverbuds program, specifically is designed for younger children. Exploring, asking questions, and an eagerness to learn is what makes the Cloverbud age such an exciting time!
