Centre County 4-Hers gear up for 2021

Jessica Pflugfelder

Centre County 4-H clubs have been busy with meetings as they gear up for what is sure to be another crazy year!

Through a combination of Zoom meetings and approved in-person meetings, 17 clubs have successfully held meetings since the start of 2021. Clubs have held livestock skillathons, voted in new officers, brought in guest speakers, completed member demonstrations, explored new 4-H project areas, and continued work on collaborative projects.

Community members have stepped up to provide meeting spaces for the clubs, including both indoor and outdoor options. This has fostered a renewed sense of community and really strengthened the 4-H spirit. For these clubs that have been meeting regularly, whether it’s over Zoom or at approved in-person events, the volunteers have provided consistency and demonstrated skills in resiliency and adaptability.

As for the kids, they are happy to be back doing what they love, even if they have to do it a little differently! Check out Centre County 4-H on Facebook for more information!

Administered in Pennsylvania by Penn State Extension, 4-H is a nonformal educational youth development program of the United States Department of Agriculture that helps young people develop knowledge and skills to become capable, caring, and contributing citizens.
