By Sam Womble County Extension Agent
Are you a current 4-H member? If so, don't forget about re-enrolling for the 2013-2014 year. All youth and adults desiring to join 4-H must enroll annually. Re-enrollment became available on 4-H Connect August 15. To enroll in 4-H, visit http://texas.4honline.com The participation fee to enroll in 4-H is $20 thru Oct. 31. Beginning Nov. 1, the fee increases to $25.
Youth are eligible to participate in 4-H if they are eight years old and in the 3rd grade or nine years of age by August 31, 2013 and have not reached their 19th birthday on or before August 31, 2013.
The Bandera County 4-H Program offers many activities for both youth and adults to experience 4-H at the local, county, district, state and national level! Through 4-H, members have opportunities to apply for scholarships, travel the country and meet new friends.
On Tuesday, Sept. 17, the Bandera County 4-H Program will host 4-H Bash Night. The event will be from 5-7 p.m. at the County Showbarn in Mansfield Park. The event is free of charge and open to the general public. The evening is devoted to showcasing many of the projects and activities available to youth through 4-H. Project leaders and youth will have displays set up, fun hands-on activities and more. So, if you've always wondered what 4-H is or how to get involved, come join us for a fun and informative evening.
Interested in volunteering? We are always looking to expand our volunteer leader base to provide additional project opportunities to youth. The fact is, without adult volunteers the 4-H program would not work. If you have an interest in youth development and time to share your skills and talents then please contact us at the Bandera County Extension Office 830-796-7755 or visit our website at http://bandera.agrilife.org
