    4H

    4H Club meets once a month, usually on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. A variety of programs are presented by a Lee County Extension Agent. We also have a couple of school projects that our club is involved with such as the butterfly garden and the nature area and trails.

    Due to overwhelming participation, we have had to increase our meetings to three days each month. We will meet the third Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in each month. There is one exception in December, please see the flyer sent home with your child.

    We are going to work on many fun projects each week! I am looking forward to a great year in 4-H Club!
