Memphis, MO — The anticipation is building for National 4-H Week, during which millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni across the country will be celebrating everything 4-H. Scotland County 4-H will observe National 4-H Week this year by showcasing the incredible experiences that 4-H offers young people, and will highlight the remarkable 4-H youth in our community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them.
Gorin Go-Getters 4-H club will proudly be participating in several activities for 4-H Week. They began the week by conducting church services at the Gorin Christian Church, followed by an appreciation meal. They will show the importance of being grateful for what others give them throughout the year by writing thank you notes and taking baked goods to businesses and individuals that support our 4-H program. They will show their pride for their organization by wearing their 4-H shirts to school.
Gorin Go-Getters have many community services projects, recreational activities, financial endeavors, and programs throughout the year. They currently have 39 members in the club. Members give back to the community through service projects that include a canned food drive, Adopt-a-Highway cleanup, spring cemetery clean-up, flags for Memorial Day, nursing home name decorations, movie theatre volunteering, and having an antique float. They include fun, recreational activities that include skating, bowling, swim parties, Christmas parties, hayrides, and football tailgates to name a few. They provide luncheons at the hospital for free-will donations. They have programs throughout the year that educates members on health and safety such as swimming safety, healthy eating and fair safety. We strive to have kids that are active in our community so that they will be adults who are active in their communities.
4-H, the nation’s largest youth development and empowerment organization, cultivates confident kids who tackle the issues that matter most in their communities right now. In the United States, 4-H programs empower six million young people through the 110 land-grant universities and Cooperative Extension in more than 3,000 local offices serving every county and parish in the country. Outside the United States, independent, country-led 4-H organizations empower one million young people in more than 50 countries. 4-H hits on the three components of a successful youth program: It offers mentoring, skill building, and leadership opportunities for students.
Gorin Go-Getters would encourage any interested youth to join us-it really is an organization that can teach so many great skills to youth. We meet every month on the second Sunday at 2 PM at the Gorin Christian Church, for more information contact Joanie Baker 660-341-8645.
