4-H 101

Sunday, October 6 is the beginning of National 4-H week.  This year, we are hosting a county-wide open house for community members to learn about 4-H.  This will be a great time for families to meet others already involved in 4-H, learn about the opportunities our program has to offer, ask questions, and learn how to get the youth in your life involved in this youth organization.  There will also be some hands on activities for the youth.

When:  Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 1-3 pm.

Where:  Lonsdale Feed Mill – 350 W Central St., Lonsdale

             Central Park – 430 2nd Ave NW, Faribault

             Morristown Community Center – 402 Division St. S, Morristown

             Northfield Area Family YMCA (community room) – 1501 Honeylocust Drive, Northfield

Who:  All families are welcome.  4-H is open to youth in kindergarten - one year past high school graduation.  We are a successful program due to our volunteers so if that is more of your interest, feel free to join us as well.
