Jefferson 4-H accepts new members

Organizers of the Jefferson 4-H Club are inviting local children and teenagers to get involved and learn by doing.

Through 4-H, boys and girls gain research-based knowledge and hands-on experience in their areas of interest.

Last year, the Jefferson group had 38 members. Marlene Hokanson, who has been involved with 4-H since her 17-year-old daughter was in fourth grade, said she anticipates that this year’s group may be larger.

Projects for 2012-13 will involve robotics, cooking, arts and crafts, and raising and training animals, among other topics.

The group’s October meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, in the Jefferson School cafeteria, 7500 W. Linne Road. Newcomers and returning members are welcome.

Open enrollment will continue until Nov. 19 for children and young adults 5 to 19 years old.

For information: Marlene Hokanson, 814-7032
