Curious About 4-H? Get Your Kiddos Started With This Fall’s Programs

Eau Claire, Dunn, and Chippewa counties offer 4-H introduction

Local 4-H programs would like to welcome new kindergarten through fourth-grade students into the program starting this fall. 4-H is a youth development organization offering children all over the country leadership skills that will last them a lifetime.

The Discover 4-H program involves six weeks of fun activities at 6:30 each Thursday between Oct. 7 and Nov. 11. The first and final nights will be held at Elk Mound Middle School, while the dates in between will be conducted virtually over Zoom. Registration is now open for $10 per youth, and closes Wednesday, Sept. 15. 

On the first night, families will receive materials necessary for their weekly Zoom meetings. To sign up, use this link:
