Have you been curious about 4-H and the positive impact it can have on your child? Join us for 4-H in the Park to experience some of the fun and exciting activities we do in 4-H, learn more about the organization, and connect with a 4-H club in your community! Each week will feature an activity based on each of what the four Hs represent: Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. A short description of what we will be doing each week are listed below. Choose to attend one session, or all sessions! To show 4-H’s dedication to service and giving back to our community, we will be holding a food drive for the entirety of the program. If you are able, please bring a non-perishable food item to the session(s) you attend. Come ready to learn and have fun! We’d love to see you and show you everything 4-H has to offer!
