The importance of joining an organization like Door County 4-H goes well beyond what they exhibit. Door County 4-H boasts seven clubs stretching from Washington Island south to the county line. Clubs meet on a monthly basis with different project groups focusing on a specific topic meeting periodically throughout the year. While it is easy to see the ribbons they earn, it is the soft skills they learn that really sticks out to Door County 4-H Educator Dawn Vandevoort.
Vandevoort says now is a great time to join one of the Door County 4-H clubs ahead of its open house event being planned for October. This is the third of a multi-part series on youth organizations kids can join locally as they enter their first week of school.
