New for 2015!
Beekeeping has been added to our list of projects in 4-H this year! Check out what is involved with raising bees, beehive care, how to extract and bottle honey, and more!
FOODS - The Foods project is designed to help youth have fun in the kitchen as they prepare different foods, do fun experiments, and go on fact-finding missions. 4-H members will learn from the six major categories: healthy food selection, smart food purchasing, food safety and science, food preparation, food preservation, careers, and food around the world.
4-H Volunteers, it is time to re-enroll for the coming year so that you can sign your Adult Behavioral Expectations for 2016, update your contact information, and let us know you plan on continuing on as a 4-H volunteer.
