4-H Super Saturday Planned

Would you like to find out what 4-H has to offer you?  This question will be answered at the Super Saturday of Leadership & Learning that is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Polk County Fairgrounds.  Polk County 4-H members will be presenting demonstrations on what they do as 4-H members.  The booths that the 4-H members will have are:

  • How to saddle a horse
  • How to groom a horse
  • How to show a horse
  • Basket weaving
  • How to make beef jerky
  • How 4-H teaches self-confidence
  • Incubation
  • Rabbits
  • Beekeeping
  • How to play the guitar
  • How to make ice cream in a bag
  • Hydrogels
  • Gun Safety
  • European Taxidermy Mounts

4-H members will be demonstrating leadership as they present the information to all who are in attendance.  The event will be set up in a rotation format.  We will rotate groups in 15 minute intervals throughout the two hours.  The Super Saturday is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about 4-H and the opportunities 4-H offers.  The event is FREE to attend.

If you know a child ages 5 to 19 who could use opportunities to gain leadership, citizenship and build life skills, 4-H may be what you are looking for.  4-H members can select from many activities in 82 project areas ranging from automotive to clothing to space camp. Whatever your child’s interest, more than likely 4-H has something to fit their needs and broaden their education through its “learn by doing” philosophy.

Any questions about 4-H should be directed to Kathy at the Polk County Extension Office at 211 DeQueen Street in Mena or by calling (479) 394-6018.

4-H programs are open to all youth between the ages of 5 and 19 without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, or any other legally protected status. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication of program information (large print, audiotapes, etc.) should notify the county Extension office (or other appropriate office) as soon as possible prior to the activity.
