As we drift into fall this year many thoughts are brought to mind. We start to change the decore in our houses to look the season, and bring the warm look to the inside of our homes while the outside starts to cool off. Blankets are brought out along with apple sider and hot chocolate. The food we set on our tables also changes  to something that will warm our insides and bring joy. I don't know about you but this time of year brings about a happiness to those around me that is unlike the joy of summer or Christmas. It's a joy that brings warmth to our hearts as we gather together to support our teams and enjoy the presence of friends and family together, because this is the start of the seasons that represent togetherness, peace, and love.

During the first week of October (1-7, 2017) all across the nation Cooperative Extension Offices are bringing awareness to 4-H'ers. This week showcases the incredible experiences that 4-H offers young people, and highlights the remarkable 4-H youth who work hard each day to make a positive impact on those around them.

4-H has a large network of Volunteers and Professionals who provide caring and supportive mentoring to each 4-H'er helping them grow into true leaders, entrpreneurs and visionaries.

Check out our exciting list of School Enrichment programs we have planned for this year. These programs give the students a hands on, real world look at the curriculum they learn in the classroom.
