Washington County celebrating 4-H Week with open house

Washington County 4-H will host an open house event from 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Unc & Neph’s in Washington to celebrate National 4-H Week.

Both 4-H staff and 4-H Youth Committee members will be present to answer questions about 4-H and volunteering.

The community is welcome to come and learn more in a casual one-on-one setting. Door prizes and special new member-joining gifts will be available all night.

Unc & Neph’s is supporting Washington County 4-H during their Tuesday Fundraising Night on Tuesday. From 5 p.m. until close, 10 percent of all food sales will go to Washington County 4-H.

Washington County 4-H is excited to start the new 4-H year this fall welcoming many new members and volunteers. Those interested contact the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811.
