Calling all Shelby County youth and parents! Have you ever wanted to learn something new and different while having fun? Well we have it, from cooking, taking pictures, fashion, shooting sports, raising and showing livestock and much, much more for youth 3rd through 12th grades.
Shelby County 4-H is getting ready to start up their new project year with our annual 4-H Kickoff which is scheduled for Sunday, August 28, 2016 beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Community House on San Augustine Street, Center. This fun-filled, hands-on event will allow the youth to try their hand at the various projects. Adults will have the opportunity to sign their children up for 4-H during the event.
4-H is a national organization which helps young people develop life-long knowledge and skills to become engaged citizens. Through 4-H, youth are also taught how to meet the diversities and challenges of today’s society by bringing together youth and adults to design programs that will teach skills for living. 4-H is truly a model of the “learning by doing” teaching concept. It reaches people in their own communities with delivery methods suitable to their needs. 4-H also helps to provide opportunities for families and communities to develop stronger bonds.
So, come see what Shelby County 4-H has to offer your child on August 28th. If you have any questions regarding this event or any others, please do not hesitate to contact the Shelby County Extension Office at 936-598-7744, Lane Dunn, M.S., Ag/NR Agent and Jheri-Lynn McSwain, M.Ed., M.S, FCS Agent.
