Member sign-ups (new and current) will be at Burton Elementary School cafeteria on the corner of Westwood and Morton on September 12 at 7:00 PM.
We have our club meetings on the first Monday of the month at 7 PM sharp unless it falls on a holiday.
Yearly fees are going to be $21 per youth and that covers insurance and registration fees.
Each project has different costs. A rabbit might be a cheaper project than, let’s say a steer. What projects did you have in mind?
Burton 4-H has leaders for the following projects:
Art & Crafts, Cake Decorating, Foods & Nutrition, Goats, Photography, Rabbits, Rocketry, Sewing, Sheep, Sign Language, Shooting Sports, Archery, Swine, Veterinary Science, and we offer a mini member project as well.
If your child is interested in a project that what we don’t offer, the child’s parent can become a leader and teach it. We are all volunteers and that is how we (the leaders) got involved.
We teach kids how to speak in public, responsibility, community awareness and record book keeping.
Youth are eligible to participate in 4-H if they meet the following criteria:
• Primary Members (also called Cloverbuds or Minimembers) – Must be 5 years old or in kindergarten by December 31 of the program year. Primary members cannot enroll in large animal projects. Youth enrolling or turning nine after December 31 must participate as a Primary Member until the end of the program year.
• 4-H Members – Must be 9 years old or in 4th grade by December 31 of the program year and may continue in the program until the end of the calendar year in which they become 19 years of age. Note: Home schooled youth are to enroll based on their chronological age, as of December 31.
