Granby 4-H sign-up night is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 4 at the Holcomb Farm Workshop. This open house from 7 to 8 p.m. will introduce the youth-officer team and project groups available for the 2023-24 program year.
The 4-H Club is an organization where kids find a welcoming community and a place where they can learn, cultivate, and grow life-long skills and friendships. Granby 4-H welcomes children ages 7-18 who are interested in exploring agricultural, vocational and STEM skills.
There are eight monthly club meetings per year, November to June, on the first Wednesday of the month at the Holcomb Farm Workshop. Meetings are run by 4-H youth officers and a 4-H member led demonstration on a familiar subject such as raising dairy goats or showing their dog at the fair. Next, the club welcomes an adult member of the community to lead a program on additional topics such as beekeeping or hands-on art activities.
4-H members are encouraged to participate in one (or many) project groups as well. This involves smaller group meetings led by volunteers willing to share their knowledge or talent. This is where more hands-on learning takes place. New project groups last year included fishing, maple-syrup making and LEGOs.
4-H participants also volunteer in the community, such as marching in the Memorial Day Parade or creating holiday ornaments for residents of MeadowBrook. Visit the new website for more information on the club, project groups, and volunteering: granby4h.com/
Parent and community volunteers are needed to provide the club members with a continued variety of projects. Past groups have included painting, homesteading, sewing, cooking and animal showmanship. Please consider what you have to offer. All are encouraged to share their knowledge with the 4-H youth.
