Dear 4-H Volunteer

Thank you for your gifts of time, service, and funds to support the youth of South Carolina this past year!  This year will be one we will never forget and we have grown a lot because of these trying times.  Thank you for your support of 4-H which gives us the chance to provide youth in South Carolina more opportunities to grow and lead in life and career through hands-on learning and doing!  Wishing you and your family a warm and bright holiday season full of hope and joy.  We are looking forward to the opportunities the New Year will bring!   

Monthly 4-H Club Activity Idea

Each month, this e-newsletter gives you a monthly activity idea that you can try with youth in your club/community.  Special attention has been given to make these activities easily conducted on a budget, during a distance-learning or in-person 4-H club setting, and adaptable for multiple age groups.
