The Putnam County 4-H Archery project is a great chance to learn about archery with or without shooting. In addition to competing in the archery shoot at the fair, members learn about parts of a bow and equipment safety. As they progress in the program, they will get to make their own arrows and equipment.
We all invest a lot of time and money in clothing. The Consumer Clothing project will help members make
all-around wise clothing decisions.
