The Cass County Extension Staff and Community Volunteers are offering 22 exciting, educational, and learn-by-doing 4-H workshops this summer.  With many of the workshops, youth will go home with an item they can exhibit at the county fair.  Besides 4-H members, these workshops are for youth in our community.  Keep reading for dates, times, workshop titles, ages, opportunities and how to register ....

The 2019  Cass County 4-H Calendar is an important tool in being prepared, meeting deadlines and knowing when events, meetings and activities are happening.  Please note the important number 15 this year - MANY of our very important deadlines fall on the 15th of the month.

If you have any questions, please contact the Extension Office at 402-267-2205 or cass-county@unl.edu
