Lincoln County 4-H

Important Information -

Limited Access 11/16/2020

------------

Updated 11/16/2020:
Continuing with recommendations from the University of Kentucky, our office is fully staffed, but the front door remains locked. We are limiting in-person visits to two at a time. We will limiting regularly scheduled in-person meetings in October, and virtual is still preferred, if at all possible. Our front doors will remain locked, but we are open and working to provide service. You may reach all of our staff by phone or email. You may continue to drop off soil/plant/insect samples. You may continue to drop off and pick-up items or publications when arranged. Our staff is currently working on how to allow groups back into the building while following all CDC recommendations and the guidelines set forth by Governor Beshear. This will be a process, so we ask for your continued patience as we work through these unprecedented times.

Who Can Join 4-H?

Anyone from 9 to 19 can join 4-H.  Some counties have younger children involved in Cloverbud activities.  When 4-H began a hundred years ago, almost everyone lived on a farm.  That's not true anymore.   4-H happens wherever kids live--in large cities, small towns, in rural areas, on farms, and even on military bases.

 

What do Kids do in 4-H?

It's up to you.  You can go to camp, learn to shop wisely, give a demonstration, give a speech, cure a ham, or conquer an obstacle course.  You can perform in a skit, make a birdhouse, start a business, learn about electricity, learn to sew, raise an animal, or protect the environment.

In 4-H you will be working with other young people toward common goals and if you wish, teaching younger kids.  You can build your 4-H activities around your own talents and interests.
