Let’s Celebrate! National 4-H Week is here and we are so excited. 4-H got its start in rural fields, but today it’s everywhere—from city streets and schools, to neighborhoods and universities. That’s why 4-H has stayed important for more than 100 years. It changes with me and you. Don’t worry. 4-H is still here in small towns across America and stronger than ever.

Along with attending events, and following along on our social media platforms, don't forget to stop by the Extension Office to check out the picture display! Also, head on down to the Medford Public Library to check out the 6 foot tall Oaxacan style Coyote “Pepe” in the children’s library. Our amazing Padgham Pavilion Youth Leadership Team created him for county fair.

National 4-H Week events:
