National 4-H Week
County Extension Agent-HE
Cherokee County 4-H members
are celebrating National 4-H Week
this week, October 4-10! Theme of
this year’s observance is “4-H for

ticipate in the week-long
In celebrating National 4-H Week,
we recognize that 4-H is truly a
people development program. 4-H
helps young people develop skills
that will be useful in the real world
It helps them discover their
strengths and weaknesses. It ex-
poses them to activities in a variety
of career fields and helps them to
build postive self concepts for direc-
ting their lives. And, most iniportan
tly, 4-H’ers learn and have fun doing
it. And families can add to the fun by
learning and growing together.
Learning doesn’t stop with the 4-H
member and family. Volunteer
leaders learn new skills while
sharing their expertise with young
people. Through a network of volun
teer leaders, state landgrant
universities, state and local gover
nments and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, 4-H has been able to
stimulate youth todevelop life ski 11s.
Over 65 adult volunteer leaders
work with 4-H boys and girls in

ferent 4-H clubs.
4-H’ers can choose from some 70
