Wayne 4-H info night March 6

Wayne 4-H info night will take place Monday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at Fisher Auditorium in Wooster. The information night is the official kickoff of the Wayne County 4-H year.

It’s a chance for parents and youth to connect with a 4-H club, 4-H volunteers and the 4-H extension staff. They can learn about the ways 4-H teaches leadership, citizenship and other life skills and how to show animals and projects at the Wayne County Fair.

More than 200 projects are available to members who enroll in the program by April 1. The event will highlight a few of those projects with hands-on activities and demonstrations planned by 4-Hers. The activities include an art project, cookie decorating, robotics and knot tying. Also included will be a demonstration of 3-D printing, a station about dog projects, the Horseless Horse project and the United Titanium Bug Zoo from the OSU campus in Wooster. Junior fair board members will provide stations on all the livestock projects.

Frank Becker, OSU Extension educator of agricultural and natural resources, will introduce the Bug Club, a 4-H SPecial INterest (SPIN) club starting in Wayne County. 4-H SPIN clubs meet throughout the year for a brief time focused on a specific topic.

The event also will highlight all kinds of activities available to youth at 4-H Camp June 30 through July 3 at 4-H Camp Ohio and special events such as Fabric Selection Nights on April 20 and 25 at 7 p.m. at JoAnn Fabrics in Wooster and Beginner Sewing Camp June 6-8.

Children are eligible to join 4-H when they are at least age 8 and enrolled in third grade as of Jan. 1. Membership ends Dec. 1 of the year in which the youth reaches age 19.

Children who are not yet old enough to enroll in 4-H may become a Cloverbud when they reach age 5 and are enrolled in kindergarten as of Jan. 1.
