Cullman County 4-H Clubs

4-H is a learn-by-doing youth development program delivered throughout Alabama.  If you are a youth living in Alabama, 4-H has something for you!

October is the beginning of a new year in 4-H!  Jay Conway, 4-H Agent, and Raydonna Sims, Agent Assistant, have begun conducting 4-H club meetings with 4th & 5th graders in our local schools.

Participation in 4-H doesn’t have to end after 5th grade.  4-H is open to all youth ages 9-18 years of age regardless of where you live. Five to eight year olds can join as Cloverbuds to explore the variety of programs available in 4-H while having fun in a non-competitive environment. 4-H has so many amazing opportunities for youth!

You are invited to join us for the first Community Club meeting of the year at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at the Cullman County Extension Office, located at 402 Arnold Street NE Suite G-1, Cullman, AL 35055.  The Cullman County Community Club is comprised of former school club members who wish to continue membership past the 5th grade, students attending a school not offering 4-H, and homeschool students.

In addition to our Cullman County Community Club, there are several special interest clubs that meet at different times throughout the year.  For more information, contact our office at 256-737-9386 to speak with Jay or Raydonna about the different opportunities available or email Jay at conwajk@auburn.edu or Raydonna at rbs0005@auburn.edu.
