INl: UrliO COUNIY 1iNlEt, tl/4HIl'Unu, Ixr.tliublw, /AUtiU,! LO, lllb id 4-H Around Us BY FRED BARKLEY, OHIO COUNTY 4-H AGENT 4-H Fits Any Need Some people have said they didn't want to become involved with 4-H because they didn't wish to be tied down with numerous meetings. Too many meetings over too short a time made 4-H unappealing to them. That's why 4-H has and is changing to meet the wants and needs of various communities over our county and state. This year, for example, some of the 4-H programs will be structured and run within our school system. Others will be run on Saturdays as school clubs, but with special emphasis put on project-type work groups. Still others are clubs set up within a community, meeting at individual homes. Small special project groups such as sewing, knitting or handicraft sometimes meet in the home of an individual leader for guidance and direction. And yet another type of 4-H group is the "special interest" program. When one or a group of individuals can participate in one area for a short, specified length of time. More often than not these are programs aired on Ky. Ed. T. V. and can be followed in the school room or right in the living room at home. So you can see from this that somewhere there is a 4-H activity that should be appealing to just about everyone. You have a choice of whether or not as well as how you can be individual. But regardless of which avenue in 4- H you wish to follow, volunteers to oversee the program, are essential. Without them, even the best of plans and programs cannot become a reality. We would like to see our 4-H program in Ohio County grow and multiply. But we need the help of interested youngsters and parents alike. As we begin the reorganization of new groups and clubs this year, we hope you will want to be included. 4-H can be as big or as little as our people want it to be. Correctly run with adequate enthusiasm, it can be a great learning experience for young and old alike. If you would like more information on how you can become a member or how you can help as a volunteer leader, call the County Extension Office for details. Remember, 4-H cares about everyone, even you!

The squash tipped the scales at 23 pounds ..... many pounds better than the average.
