New 4-H Club in Toledo Invites Youth of All Ages to Join
Families in the Toledo area won’t want to miss the Ocean Kiddos and Cloverbuds 4-H Club’s Open House on Sunday, October 11 at the Toledo Library from 1-3pm. Come on down and find out how youth ages 5-18 can join this exciting new 4-H Club that will meet in Toledo for a wide variety of activities.
Club Leader Jen Mack and current 4-H youth will share their experiences in 4-H plus plans for this coming year. Possible projects include raising small animals, arts and crafts, food preservation, photography and much more. Mack encourages youth to bring their own ideas for activities to explore, whatever areas interest them. Parents are also invited to bring their ideas and questions as well as to consider joining 4-H themselves as a volunteer or occasional club assistant.
The 4-H Youth Development Program focuses on providing youth of all ages with the life skills they need to succeed in today’s – and tomorrow’s – world. Projects and activities are ways that help young people learn and grow through programs that build competence, confidence, connection, compassion and character. Research has shown that by participating in 4-H young people prepare themselves for economic and social success in adulthood.
