Join current 4-H Members and Leaders as well as Alumni from around the country at the 4-H Alumni and Member Breakfast being held this Saturday at 9 am at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds main exhibit hall. The event aims to celebrate the Lincoln County 4-H Program’s successes while raising money to get this year off to a great start.
Participants will enjoy either a pancake or breakfast burrito plate for $5 with refillable drinks available for $1. All proceeds will benefit the 4-H program. The event will also help kick off National 4-H Week, which runs October 6-12 this year. More than 7 million young people across the country participate in the 4-H Youth Development program, which offers opportunities for personal growth and progress in any imaginable project area.
Lincoln County 4-H prides itself on the ability to build a project around any theme, allowing youth to explore new areas while learning the skills that will help them be successful throughout life. Research has proven that participation in 4-H leads youth to participate more in their communities, choose healthy behaviors and engage in educational programs outside of school sessions.
In Lincoln County nearly 200 youth participated in 4-H activities last year, made possible thanks to the dedication of countless volunteers. This year is gearing up with Lego Robotics clubs forming, horse and dog clubs starting their meetings, and other clubs focusing on static projects such as sewing, leathercraft, horticulture, cooking, natural science and so much more. Other ways to participate in 4-H include outdoor schools and camps, community gardens and community clubs and workshops.
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun and help get the 4-H year off to a great start at the 4-H Alumni and Member Pancake Breakfast on October 5 at 9 am. For more information, please contact the Lincoln County Extension Office at 541-574-6534.
