LAKE COUNTY — They arrive in hordes! They travel in packs! They’re either slower than molasses in January or quicker than a dog towards a bone…and now the youth of Lake County are ready for them! As many youth descended on the town of Baldwin to begin the yearly quest of securing sugary treats while dressed up in costumes, a group of Lake County youth had a quick stop to make first.
Along with being Halloween, Oct. 31 marked the third and final session of the Lake County 4-H Zombie Preppers Squad, a 4-H program dedicated to helping youth learn about preparing for natural disasters…and even for a Zombie Apocalypse. Over the course of three sessions, 10 participants were able to take part in activities such as how to bandage a wound, how to generate heat without electricity, how to assemble a first aid and emergency kit, and much more.
