The University of Missouri Extension wishes to remind Moniteau County parents of children ages 5-18 to join a local 4-H club program.
While the original sign-up date was Oct. 1, the program allows children to join at any time of the year.
The program, which is found in 80 different countries and ultimately reaches out to just about five million youth worldwide, offers a vast array of skills and projects. Participants may develop leadership and life skills while acquiring knowledge and even meeting new friends.
A few of the more popular projects of 4H, which are oftentimes featured in county fairs, are: clothing, foods, horses, gardening, beef, shooting sports, woodworking, country cured hams, photography, swine, goats, robotics, entrepreneurship and leadership.
The annual state dues for 4-H are only $20, but members of Home State Health or Missouri Care will have their fees paid for by those agencies.
Interested parties in Clarksburg, Jamestown, Latham, High Point, McGirk, Tipton and California may enroll at mo4h.missouri.edu.
