Although our 4-H Clubs have had to throttle back their plans for an early start to the 4-H year because of the continuing Covid issues, you can still get signed up now, so you don’t miss a thing! If you have friends interested in 4-H they can enroll too, but make sure they call the Extension Office, so we get them on all the mailing lists!

In addition, I’m again offering a special award for Top entries in “4-H Caring Clovers.”
