Bring the World Home through Ohio 4-H!

Looking for some new fun and educational excitement this summer? How about hosting a boy or girl from Japan in your home for 3½ weeks? (July 24 – Aug. 18) The Ohio 4-H International Program is offering hosting opportunities to 75 families around the state, and Japanese youth on the other side of the world are anxiously waiting to learn who their new family might be! Host families should have their own child aged 10-15 who will serve as the main host sibling. Families will be matched with a Japanese youth of the same gender and approximate age. Special trips and activities are not required. The focus is on everyday family life. Host families provide lodging, meals, and any family activities. Medical insurance is provided. Youth bring money for personal spending (gifts, souvenirs, etc.) For more information, please visit Ohio 4-H International or contact Mary Lynn Thalheimer at or 614-247-8162.

Ordering 4-H Books

Just a reminder that the last day for our office to place any orders for 4-H books is May 1.  Please don’t wait!  After this deadline, you will need to place your own order and it will cost you more than what we sell the books for in the office.  We order books every Friday.  It is taking about 2-3 weeks for the books to arrive at our office.  We will contact you when books arrive.  We ask that they are picked up within 2 weeks.

Feel free to email or call us with your order.
