I am proud to be a 4-H alumni, as I made so many life long friends through 4-H. But I also learned that I had leadership skills, youth development skills, and the ability to help others work through challenges through 4-H. 4-H isn't just an organization, it is a family. There is a whole new community created through 4-H. Be it computer skills, raising livestock or dairy projects, sewing, cooking, nutrition, gardening, money management, career development, public speaking, wildlife studies, etc. There is just about something for everyone.
This week, I challenge you, that if you don't know about 4-H to ask around and see if there is 4-H in your community. If so find out what they do and how you could be involved.
If you are involved with 4-H, I challenge you to take time to thank someone that has been an influence in your 4-H career.
4-H Motto : To Make the Best Better
4-H Pledge : I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
my heart to greater loyalty,
my hands to larger service
my health to better living
for my club, my community, my country and my world.
