4-H Transitioning Back to In-Person Workshops


After a year of not having face-to-face workshops, 4-H youth are now able to attend workshops with fellow members and friends.  Although, there will be a set number that can attend.  Attendees will be following the IDPH COVID restrictions, masks and social distancing will be required.

A Food Decorating Workshop is being offered on Saturday, April 24, from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. at the Extension office.  Lynn Hartzell, of The Copper Penny, will be offering her expertise, from her years of experience, to the youth in attendance.  As a youth, Lynn was a 4-H member and was enrolled in Food Decorating.  Little did she know that she was going to make a career out of her 4-H project.

Youth horse enthusiasts will have the opportunity to attend a Horse Clinic on Saturday, May 22, from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Edwards County 4-H horse arena.  David Shain and Brooklyn Hazel will be offering their skills to the youth in attendance.  They will be demonstrating on Horsemanship and Showmanship.  We hope many will take advantage of this free clinic.

Be sure to watch the Edwards County 4-H Facebook, for additional workshops that will be scheduled.  It has been a long year and we are looking forward to getting the members back together and giving them a great 4-H experience.
