4-H Clubs

What are 4-H Clubs?

4-H clubs are made up of area youth and their families.   The club has regular meetings where youth participate in activities and help plan upcoming events.  The 4-H clubs are not only active within their own community, but they are also involved in activities involving the entire county.  Being a member of a 4-H club allows youth to gain great leadership skills in a safe and fun environment.
