On Wednesday, May 30, 2012, Terrebonne 4-H members traveled to Baton Rouge to participate in the annual 4-H Day at the Capitol event. Members toured the Capitol building and were given a chance to meet our local representatives and senators. Special thanks to Senator Norby Chabert for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with our youth.
