White County 4-H New Year Has Begun: New Members Welcome Now

White County 4-H would like to build on their future. The new year began September 1 for the 2019-2020 4-H year. Be the best you can be and join a 4-H club today.

Ages: If you are ages, five through seven (as of September 1) you can join as a Cloverbud 4-H member. The traditional 4-H club member is ages eight (as of September 1) to 19 years old. These youth are a strong voice, and they determine the activities in their clubs.

 

4-H members can choose their own path being as active as they want to be in a club. They do have to meet a few basic requirements, but that is simple to do. 4-H grows confident kids who tackle issues that matter. 4-H gives “real-life” experiences in teaching others, planning events, community service, and having fun with friends. Just ask a local 4-H member what they have learned through the 4-H program!

Leadership skills help us to learn and to work together. 4-H teaches you to not be afraid of trying new things and that it is ok to make mistakes in a safe environment with 4-H provides.

Clubs are now forming for the new 2019-2020 year. Now is the perfect time to join in to get in on all the action! We have six community clubs who are currently take enrollments: 76 Clovers, Centerville Ripsnorters, Enfield Blue Ribbon, Grayville Go-Getters, Mad Hatters, and the Town & Country Clovers. We also have a very active SPIN (Special Interest) Club, the White County Shooting Stars.

Call the White County Extension Office at 618-382-2662 for meeting locations and times. We want you in 4-H! Join us for a Pizza, Popcorn, and Movie night on September 27 starting at 5:30 at the White County Farm Bureau building in Carmi, to learn more about White County 4-H.
