Where We've Been
Recognition Night Reflection
In November, 4-H families and volunteers gathered to celebrate the past 4-H year with a taco bar and ice cream! Many volunteer years of service, record book awards, and new member certificates were given out. The 4-H Foundation is proud to help fund this event to keep costs low for families.

The 2022-2023 4-H theme is "Building the Future."
New County Youth Coordinator
Clinton County Extension and Outreach is excited to welcome back Amanda Rau as the County Youth Coordinator. Amanda was previously the CYC, transferred to K-12 Youth Outreach in July of 2022, and has returned to the revised CYC role starting January 3. The transition happened after an office restructuring that added an Ag & Natural Resources Program Coordinator.
