4-H takes national celebration virtual

4-H clubs in Door and Kewaunee counties have had the opportunity this week to celebrate their organization while reaching out to new members.  Many of the events taking place this week were held virtually, including a trivia night on Thursday and theme days on social media. Thursday also marked the first night of the six-week Explore 4-H program where youth can participate in activities and learn about the organization. Door County 4-H Educator Dawn Vandevoort led a group of about 20 families on Zoom in making bread in a bag while Kewaunee County’s Jill Jorgensen and Brown County’s Melinda Pollen interacted with the kids and answered questions. Jorgensen says the virtual programming has been a great way for 4-H to stay connected with its members and show off their activities to the entire community.

While registration for the Explore 4-H sessions is closed, Jorgensen says they will likely develop a similar program for the winter. She adds that registration is open to join 4-H across the state, including Kewaunee County’s 13 clubs and Door County’s seven clubs. National 4-H Week celebrates the country’s approximately 90,000, serving over 6.5 million members.
