Thanks to a grant from the Ohio 4-H Foundation, we are able to offer “Experience 4-H at Home” kits. Throughout 2021, we will offer 4 different kits, based on each of the H’s in 4-H. The next, and final, kit will be all about the 4th H- HEALTH
The kits are geared toward Cloverbud age.
The kits will include the activities to complete and the majority of the supplies needed.
Space is limited.
I will send an email confirmation once we reach our capacity. When kits are ready for pickup, I ask that they are picked up within 2 weeks. Otherwise, we will open to the waitlist.

As we approach the end of the fair, please take the time to write thank-you notes.
Your awards (trophies, ribbons, plaques, plates, etc.) all need a thank you written.
