Students, parents or potential volunteers interested in learning more about the DeWitt County 4-H program can attend a crash course this coming weekend for answers to all their questions.
University of Illinois Extension Youth Educator Sherry Fulton indicates this Saturday, a volunteer within the group is hosting an eventful night for anyone to get information on the upcoming year in 4-H. The conclusion of the DeWitt County 4-H fair all but marks the end of the 4-H year for many within the program.
New this year will be a later start to the 4-H. Fulton indicates instead of starting the first of September, their year doesn't start until October. She says this will give perspective members more of a chance to consider 4-H.
Fulton is encouraged an alumni of 4-H is heading the event this weekend. She says the future of the program is going to hinge on younger volunteers stepping up to help the program.
Again this Friday's event to learn more about 4-H is this Saturday from 5 pm to 7 pm at the DeWitt County 4-H Fairgrounds.
