This past National 4-H Week (October 1-7, 2017), was a fun kickoff for the Azen Jolly Timers 4-H club members to celebrate the experiences that 4-H offers young people. Nationally, 4-H is the largest youth organization with more than six million young people enrolled.
The Azen Jolly Timers club is an active, Scotland County 4-H club that meets the first Wednesday of each month at the Memphis United Methodist Church. Our 4-H year runs from October 1st thru September 30th each year. Throughout the year, the Azen Jolly Timers are active with an array of 4-H projects, serving our community with service projects and celebrating our accomplishments at fairs and competitions held at the local, regional, state and national levels.
We have an annual hayride and bonfire for our club members and parents, participate in the Antique Fair and parade, erect the American flags that are seen at the courthouse on federal holidays and most important…have FUN!
Our next meeting is a hayride and bonfire on October 29th and anyone interested in 4-H are welcome to join us. If you have questions about 4-H, or our service projects, please contact Leslie Troutman at 660-988-1006, Lisa Doster at 573-721-0583 or our local extension office at 660-465-7255.
