The New Year is here which means it is time for 4-H families to consider what animals they will be exhibiting at the County Fair! Whether you are a new member or have been enrolled in the program for years it is important that you pay attention to the important information related to the Animal Identification process as there can be changes from year to year.

Project Pod

4-H remains committed to accomplishing our mission of building life skills, creating meaningful relationships and connecting with our communities. YOU can be a part of that solution by creating or joining a project pod this year.

Working with youth: Supportive relationships

4-H is for all youth, from kindergarten through one year past high school. 4-H welcomes boys, girls, and adults from all backgrounds and locations. The entire family can join in projects and activities. Younger members, kindergarten through second grade are part of the Cloverbud program. Cloverbud activities promote creativity and discovery without emphasis on competition.

Members can choose which projects they want to learn about and what events and activities they want to attend. The more a youth is involved in 4-H, the more they get from the experience. Expand your comfort zone and try new experiences.
