M-P 4-H will host open house

HENRY — Now is the time to think about joining 4-H for the 2019-20 4-H year. 4-H members range in age from 8 to 18. Youths who are 5 to 7 years of age may join 4-H as a Cloverbud member.

To learn more about this program, Marshall-Putnam 4-H will host an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the University of Illinois Extension, Henry office, at 509 Front St. There will be refreshments and giveaways. Staff will be available to help register at 4honline.com.

4-H is the largest out-of-school youth program in the country. There are 6 million kids across the county in 4-H, and 200,000 of them live in Illinois.

Marshall-Putnam 4-H offers many ways to be involved: traditional community clubs, SPecial INterest (SPIN) clubs, Teen Teachers and school programs. Registration began Sept. 10. There is a community club for every community in Marshall and Putnam counties. Marshall-Putnam 4-H has openings for Shooting Sports: Air Rifle, .22 Rifle, Archery, Hunting Skills and Shotgun, Aerospace, Agriculture, and Wind & STEM.

Teen Teaching opportunities are open for the Health Rocks program at Henry-Senachwine schools. Training will be held Friday, Sept. 13, at the U of I Extension office.

Youths can join 4-H anytime during the year. However, in order to receive premiums in the 2020 4-H Show in July, they must register by Dec. 1.
