Sparks fly for area 4-H clubs

It is a special week for the 19 4-H clubs that call your communities home in Door and Kewaunee counties. The first week of October is recognized as National 4-H Week, when local clubs celebrate the organization and its opportunities. In Door County, it will be the last one with Dawn VandeVoort as its area educator. VandeVoort is remaining in Door County and 4-H, but she is transitioning to a statewide role helping train the over 7,000 volunteers the organization relies on to help guide its over 22,000 members. On the other side of the spectrum, it is the first National 4-H Week for Mariah Vandertie, who took on the role of area educator in Kewaunee County four months ago. Vandertie says the great thing about 4-H is the organization’s ability to allow kids to pursue their interests.

For those interested in joining 4-H, you can click on this link to register and find a club near you. Kewaunee County 4-H will host its annual open house at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds from 1 to 3 p.m. Vandertie says the event will feature crafts, demonstrations, and other activities while showcasing the program.
