All programs and meetings will be held at Western Veterinary Clinic on Monday evenings at 6pm sharp and will be done promptly at 8pm.
Online enrollment for 4-H is closed.
The cost of $15 enrolls the student in the state program. They will then be contacted by their township or club coordinator to educate the family on additional opportunities for projects in 4-H. 4-H members enrolled in Vet Science are encouraged to purchase a 4-H manual on Vet Science for $5, which can be purchased the first evening. If students are enrolling at the same level, they can use their book from last year. There will be a variety of animal related topics for each night and guest speakers from the community will be presenting. The goal of the program is to introduce students to careers in veterinary medicine and working with animals in general, both large and small.
Students are encouraged to present a project at the 4-H Fair July 3rd thru July 11 and they will be educated on expectations and ideas for the project.
Grades 3 thru 5 will meet on January 26, February 2, and February 9.
Grades 6 thru 12 will meet on February 16, 23 and March 2, 9, 16, and 23.
For general questions about 4-H, please call Purdue Extension-St. Joseph County at 574-235-9604. If your student would like to attend meetings, they just need to come the first night after enrolling in 4-H. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend with the 4-H member. A list of topics to be presented will be handed out the first night. There may also be opportunities for field trips.
The superintendents for this project are Dr. Marty Langhofer and Pam Mahlie, RVT.
