Every child is a success story waiting to begin. And all of us can get involved to make this happen. 4-H is an organization devoted to helping kids grow life skills and recognizing them for their accomplishments. Every child is a winner in 4-H. The best way for children to believe they are winners is to see themselves winning. We are proud of our 4-H members and their accomplishments. We are happy to provide experiences for youth to have the opportunity to be winners - in 4-H and life. Online enrollment and fees due May 1. We invite youth, adults, organizations and businesses to join us in making kids successful. Your support helps plant the seeds of success in children. Give to grow 4-H.
Where else but 4-H can youth learn about everything from sewing a quilt, decorating a t-shirt, growing plants, learning about savings and spending, to raising broilers, cake decorating, baking, coding AND more. 4-H families received the flyer for the 2019 4-H Anytime Learning activities and workshops. It’s always a good time to grow and learn something new! Online registration deadline is April 15.
