(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – May 19, 2017 Kendra McAndrew held an open house for the newly constructed Announcer Stand she orchestrated for the 4-H Horse Arena located adjacent to the Dearborn County Fairgrounds.  Kendra, a Girl Scout member, chose this project for her Gold Award, an honor comparable to Boy Scout’s Eagle award.

Kendra began her journey by discussing the need for an announcer stand with the leader of the 4-H Eldorado Horse & Pony club.  The next step was to come to the Dearborn County 4-H Board of Directors and ask permission to proceed with the project.  With their blessing, Kendra approached City of Lawrenceburg Mayor, Kelly Moullaun and the Lawrenceburg Conservancy to obtain permission and acquire necessary building permits.

Kendra organized the drafting of blueprint plans and developed a budget.  She negotiated with local business and construction agents to proceed with the project. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, the announcer stand was open to the public on May 19.

Dearborn County 4-H Association and Board of Directors, and Horse & Pony project members,’ value and appreciate Kendra’s time, talent and energy in getting the construction of the Announcer’s Stand ready for use during June, 2017 4-H activities held at the Dearborn County Fair.  4-H would like to thank the Mayor, Kelly Mollaun, the City of Lawrenceburg and Lawrenceburg Conservancy District for helping Kendra Mcandrews complete her project and earn the Gold Award.
