The annual Douglas County 4-H Information Night is 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.

“We are excited to showcase our current clubs to new and existing families, as well as open the doors of possibilities to start new clubs with the talents and volunteerism of Douglas County residents,” organizers said. “We are looking for new 4-H Club Leaders for the Hiking Club and Bee and Pollinator Club. We are also hopeful to acquire new leaders to start new 4-H clubs.”

Participants in clubs must be age 5-19 as of Jan. 1, 2024.

Clubs include baking, bee (Spin), sewing, cloverbuds, shooting sports, equestrian, sheep, wings & things, rabbit, dog, speaking with confidence and teen ambassadors.

Advanced baking is available to returning 4-H members or with approval from the leader. Baking and sewing have limited enrollment and will fill up quickly. Shooting sports members will have all equipment provided.

There are no fees to sign up, but families are responsible for all care, housing, feed and costs for their livestock. Make sure you sign your name to a place-holder list at this event.

Organizers ask that participants not purchase any animals or equipment prior to the meeting and approval from a club leader.

4-H is a youth development program where youth sign up for a club to gain important life skills.
