4-H clover Wilmington Gophers

Come join the fun! Even through these difficult times the past couple years, the Wilmington Gophers have been going strong. Our members have participated in various community service activities, putting smiles on people’s faces. We got together to do yard work at our local nursing home, cleaned up road ditches, members delivered Meals on Wheels, and some had fun making crafts and centerpieces to share with senior citizens at the nursing home and senior dining. During the summer, our club Tour took us to some of our members’ homes to see and learn about their fair projects. We ended the tour with a fun potluck meal together.

When possible, we have in person meetings with demonstrations, snacks, and conversation. We also have activity or themed meetings, such as bowling or “pie night.” Everything's better when food is involved! Other opportunities for fun have included playing chair volleyball with our local senior citizens, participating in the 4-H Fall Festival, working at the 4-H food stand during the fair, and, of course, participating in the Houston County Fair!

We are a young group - the majority of our members are under the age of fourteen, so we have many bright years to look forward to! We are always happy to accept new members. Our meetings are typically held on the second Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the front room of the Spring Grove Legion. We would love to have you in our club. You can learn a lot, develop skills to use throughout your life, and have fun along the way!
