Liberty 4-H Clubs marking week
Placeholder Image
Oct. 4-10 is National 4-H Week and Liberty County is celebrating by hosting Biofuels Blast on Fort Stewart.
“4-H has been a very big part of our family’s extra-curricular activities,” Shantel Smalls said. “My children have learned how to plan efficiently and follow through on any given process. It has also enriched all of our lives through community service. We sign up for every event in which Liberty County 4-H participates.”
In Liberty County, more than 1,000 4-H’ers and 20 volunteers are involved. The number is constantly growing, according to Terri Thompson, who coordinates the program for the Liberty County Extension Service.
The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical, “learn by doing” experiences encourage youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. 4-H programs are offered through school-based, after-school and camp settings and within community clubs.
To learn how to become a 4-H member or volunteer leader, contact Thompson or Erica Randall, program assistant, with the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension office at 100-A Liberty St.   
4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.
