January is perfect time to join 4-H


By Tracy Winters - Contributing Columnist



Don’t miss your opportunity to join the largest youth development organization in Gallia County.

4-H offers children in grades K-12 opportunities to develop leadership skills, financial skills, responsibility, and even earn cash for their education.

Through 4-H members can: earn trips to Washington, D.C.; attend state camps, including Space Camp and Sea Camp; meet youth from all over Ohio; take part in 4-H summer camps; compete at county and state fairs; earn college scholarships; and much more.

Clubs all over Gallia County are busy re-organizing. Now is the time to enroll your child as a 4-H member or to get involved as an adult volunteer. The deadline to join 4-H is April 1.

For the safety of our children, all adults who wish to become involved in 4-H as a club advisor must complete an application, provide references, have a background check, and undergo volunteer training. Volunteer trainings started Jan. 23 and end March 1; pre-registration for the trainings is required.

For more information on joining 4-H and what the program has to offer, visit www.gallia.osu.edu or call the OSU Extension office at 740-446-7007. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
