Marshall County 4-H adds several new projects

Friday, October 6, 2017

Today marks the end of the week set aside for honoring 4-H Clubs across the nation.

Not resting on their laurels, however, the Marshall County 4-H Club announces the addition of several new project groups for the coming year.

These new groups tie in with the 4-H goal of offering hands-on learning and leadership development to young people in the community.

For this school year, project groups are being added in food science, line and design, and livestock.

Each group will meet on the third Thursday of the month at 5:30 p.m from October through April, with the exception of December.

Food science will teach hands on cooking and nutrition for aspiring young chefs or for youngsters just interested in healthy cooking for themselves.

The line and design class will create various projects during the class using a specialized cutting machine.

Crafts include a monogrammed t-shirt, a keychain, holiday crafts, and more.

Both the food science and the design classes have a $25 registration fee.

The livestock group will cover the care and raising of various types of livestock.

Registration for these groups closes on Tuesday, Oct.10.

4-H is also adding a homeschool club for students in the 4th through 12th grades to mirror the opportunity offered to other school-based groups.

All group meetings are held at the 4-H Office located at the Hardison Annex, 230 College Street, Lewisburg.
