Celebrate National 4-H Week

The theme for National 4-H Week this year is “Opportunity Four All” and we shared several of our favorite 4-H opportunities with the Barton County Commissioners last week and these included:

1) Creating Connections

2) Expanding knowledge and growing in leadership

3) Meeting new people

For myself, 4-H Opportunities means: developing the next generation of community leaders!

The new 4-H year began Oct. 1st and the Cottonwood Extension Office can provide more information about joining 4-H! 

For an important date to add to your calendar, the 4-H BBQ has been moved to Sunday, Oct. 11 with serving in a drive-through format from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each meal will cost $8 and include barbequed beef or pork, baked beans, and cole slaw. We will not be selling advance tickets this year. The proceeds of the 4-H BBQ help provide event scholarships and funds for learning activities for youth in Barton County. Please plan to join us!

Keep learning. Keep showing grace and kindness!
