With 13 clubs spread out across the area, almost every community in Kewaunee County has a 4-H Club to call its own. Clubs host meetings approximately once a month while project meetings for different focus areas like livestock, dogs, and more meet periodically throughout the year. Kewaunee County 4-H Educator Jill Jorgensen says allowing members to join in Kindergarten and stay through their freshman year of college helps keep membership engaged.
Jorgensen says kids in Kewaunee County should give 4-H a try because of the wide range of opportunities available to them including showing at the fair, camping, and leadership training. You can learn more about 4-H by contacting the Kewaunee County UW-Extension office or attending their open house on October 12th at the fairgrounds in Luxemburg. This is the first in a multi-part series of organizations kids can join as the school year begins.
