4-H information night is scheduled Sept. 27

Anoka County 4-H will host an information night Thursday, Sept. 27, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Bunker Hills Activities Center, 550 Bunker Lake Blvd. N.W., Andover.

There will be fun, hands-on activities and general information about 4-H, according to Anna Gilbertson, 4-H program coordinator, University of Minnesota Extension, Anoka County.

“All across Minnesota, kids are learning, growing and having fun in 4-H clubs and with 4-H adventures,” Gilbertson said.

“4-H clubs meet all across Anoka County each month. We can help you find a 4-H club that meets the interests and needs of your family.”

4-H lets kids try new things, try new skills and express themselves through fun hands-on activities, Gilbertson said.

Working on projects helps connect kids with their friends, families, communities and the world, she said.

“4-H helps kids gain confidence and develop life skills that will help them be successful,” Gilbertson said.

4-H clubs are open to all youth, kindergarten through one year past high school.

“4-H welcomes boys, girls and adults from all backgrounds,” Gilbertson said.

“The entire family can join in projects and activities.

“Younger kids, kindergarten through third grade, are part of the Cloverbud program. Cloverbud activities promote creativity and discovery without emphasis on competition.
