4-H seeks more clubs


PARIS – The Oxford County 4-H program would like to expand its general clubs in Oxford County. The general club leader helps to organize and bring together 4-H members in a variety of projects, including arts, crafts, livestock, community service and leadership. Many clubs focus on independent youth projects.

Clubs can be started at any time during the year with re-enrollment in October, and they can be general clubs or clubs that specialize in specific project areas. Those interested in organizing a club should contact Susan Jennings, Extension educator, at 1-800-287-1482 or 743-6329.

Four-H is open to all youth, ages 5 to 17, and it does not require any national, state or county dues and does not have fundraising requirements. Project materials cover a large variety of topics from art, drama and photography to rocketry and science.
