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 ....
