It's that time of year again to start enrolling for the 2017 4-H year.  The process is going to be the same as last year and you can find a step by step guide here.

Dodge County 4-H online enrollment must be completed (including the $10 online payment) by ENROLLMENT DEADLINE June 15, 2017.  We encourage you to enroll by May 1 so you do not miss out on important 4-H information.

The 2017 growing season is just around the corner.  As you check important "to do" items off your list remember to look at your Nebraska Department of Agriculture pesticide applicator card to see if this is your year to recertify.  If your certification expires April 15, 2017 you will need to attend a private pesticide applicator training.  

The list of dates for Dodge and Washington counties can be found at Crop Tech Cafe.

As a result of the post-fair meetings and the recommendations brought before the 4-H Council at their November meeting, the following changes will be implemented in 2017.
