Orange Blossom 4-H will have its kickoff to the new program year meeting on Monday, Sept. 13, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. at the Knights Ferry Community Hall in Knights Ferry. Join in to sign up for the new projects and then enjoy an ice cream social with fellow 4-Hers after the meeting.
You do not need to own an animal to be in 4-H nor do you need to live on a farm. 4-H is a youth program with more activities than you can imagine. 4-H has rural, suburban and urban kids that not only take part in the livestock area, but in foods and nutrition, sewing, arts and crafts and public speaking just to name a few. In Stanislaus County ages 5-19 are eligible to participate. 4-H members participate in events, contests, projects, exhibits, summer and winter camps, international programs, scholarships, and more.
4-H members can learn about leadership, learn new skills, and have the chance to participate in workshops, both county and state activities and more. Many teens become leaders that help the younger and new 4-H members. There are special citizenship projects for California and Washington D.C. A positive attitude, the willingness to learn new projects, meet new people, and to do some type of community service and most of all; have fun.
