Time to enroll in Mini 4-H

From the Wells County Extension Officer:

Youth in first and second grades are invited to join in the fun of Mini 4-H and exhibit a project at the Wells County 4-H Fair, July 14-19. Mini 4-H members are encouraged to enroll in one of the various projects of their choice. The projects include: Collections, Crafts, Dinosaurs, Farm Animals, Foods, Horse & Pony, Models, My Pet and Me, Plants and Flowers, Sewing, Whales & Dolphins, and Rabbit.

Participants complete the project during the summer and bring it to the Wells County 4-H Fair, July 14-19. Mini 4-H members are also invited to the annual Mini 4-H Round Up which will be held in June at the 4-H Park in Bluffton. Information about Mini 4-H has been distributed to all Wells County first and second grade students in the public schools. Parents with children interested in Mini 4-H should have their child return the official Mini 4-H card to their school teacher. 4-H officials will then collect the enrollment cards at the schools.

Parents of home schooled youth or children who missed getting a form at school may contact the Wells County Office of the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service, 260-824-6412. The office is located in the Wells County 4-H Park in Bluffton. Office hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Final sign up for Mini 4-H is May
