This week is National 4-H Week. For many in the county, it’s a time to celebrate the positive impact of 4-H on the community as well as enroll new members. Marion County Extension Youth Services Coordinator Mindy Kephart says 4-H teaches children leadership skills and helps build relationships among youth. Those relationships are not just within the club and county, but also extend throughout the state and nation at things like the State Fair or through exchange programs. For more information about 4-H, contact the Marion County Extension Office at 842-2014.
