4-H Open House to be held Oct. 23

Make plans now to attend 4-H Open House on Friday, Oct. 23.

Open House is a prime opportunity to explore 4-H in general and check out more information concerning specific projects and clubs that will be represented.

Where can kids have fun, participate in exciting hands-on activities and make new friends? Any 4-Her can tell you!

4-H has something for everyone; boys and girls ages 5-18 join 4-H to learn about science, engineering, technology, community service, nutrition, exercise and more. In 4-H clubs, camps, in-school and after-school programs, kids learn leadership, citizenship and life skills while they participate in experiences that prepare them to be successful adults. Today’s 4-H touches the lives of more than seven million kids across America in urban, suburban and rural communities.

If you are interested in learning more about 4-H, then this is the place to be. There will be goodies for new members enrolling, as well as 4-H merchandise for sale for all members and adults.

So, again, join us at the fairgrounds from 4 to 6 p.m. for a great time.

Sign up for AgrAbility workshop

AgrAbility is a unique government-funded program run by Colorado State University Extension and Easter Seals Colorado.
