This past summer local young people participated in the Polk County 4-H photography classes for beginners.

These youngsters traveled the county looking for traits that make Polk County beautiful.

As in the past the 4-H staff has taken one of each child’s photos and turned them into a set of eight note cards for area residents to purchase.

This year’s scenes include Pearson’s Falls, Colt Creek and the view from White Oak Mountain to name a few.

“We are calling our cards ‘Naturally Beautiful Polk County,’ said, Helen Clark 4-H Agent for Polk County. “In addition to images of our natural environment we also have images of the Rotary Clock Plaza and the 1859 County Courthouse, plus others.”

These note cards are perfect for stockings or any family who miss scenes from home. For more information stop by or call the extension center in Columbus at 828-894-8218.
