National 4-H Week is the week of Oct. 6-12.
4-H members and volunteers across Kentucky will celebrate the many facets of 4-H with various events and activities.
The Kentucky 4-H program, the largest youth organization in the state, creates an environment for positive youth development. With more than 228,000 youth participants and 22,000 volunteers, the program gives many young people the opportunity to form a sense of belonging with their peers who may share similar interests. 4-H members are encouraged to learn independence and generosity while working toward their goals. They are provided safe environments to work in, positive role models to look up to and numerous leadership opportunities. Kentucky 4-H helps guide youth in the life skills that they find interesting and is a rewarding experience for those involved.
During National 4-H Week, Oct. 6-12, join Henry County in the celebrating by kicking off new project clubs for the year. The Henry County Sharp Shooters meet on Monday evening, the Photography Club took a field trip to Crowe’s Chase Nature Preserve on Tuesday, and the Crocheting Club will be meeting on Thursday to work on this year’s projects.
