University of Illinois Extension Reporting Uptick in 4-H Participation in Logan, Menard and Sangamon Counties

The University of Illinois Extension in Logan, Menard, and Sangamon Counties is celebrating a big increase in participation in 4-H this year.


Extension Director Terri Miller-Casey indicates they are seeing more kids out this year and she feels it is because in a time when activities for kids are not always what parents are looking for, 4-H continues to be a safe haven for youth.



Miller-Casey notes the traditional fair season is when most 4-H projects are returned but they are already doing some of those projects now.



Miller-Casey hopes parents will consider enrolling their kids in 4-H. She stresses it is not ever too late to join 4-H and they will give anyone the chance to watch a club meeting and learn what it's all about.
