The Joy of 4-H

Over the weekend, my daughter and I traveled to Ohio to attend a family wedding.  While there, we visited a cheese chalet and the local Wendall August store.  At both locations, we talked to people who told my daughter she needed to join 4-H.  This is a "no-brainer" for us since I have worked as a 4-H professional since graduating college and see the benefits of 4-H everyday.  But hearing the fellow tourists openly talk about how much they love 4-H and how much their children benefited from 4-H humbled me and made me realize how 4-H changes lives everyday.

So, if your family is not involved in 4-H yet, I encourage you to join the millions of youth who are more likely to attend college, less likely to engage in drug use!
