Basic Info

We are primarily, but not exclusively, a homeschool 4-H club.

Our regular "club" meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month see calendar for details.

at The Bible Presbyterian Church at 5635 NorthDaughtery Rd, not far from the N. Walmart.

4H is for youth ages 8-18 by Sept. 1st 2014.

Club yearly dues are $15 per  4-H member (age 8-18).  $5 for Cloverbuds ages 5-7, additionally, there is an insurance fee...  $1 per person OR$2 if you are involved in the horse project.Insurance must be paid prior to participation in any project. (checks/money orders written out to HomeGrown or cash is great too!)***

Each project meets at different times/days/# of meetings, depending On the project leader, who is a volunteer.

The mission statement of 4H is "TO MAKE THE BEST, BETTER".

It is all about learning new skills, leadership and community service.

I have uploaded a signed copy of the general (can be used for both perishable and non-perishable entries) entry form for the youth fair.  If you need a different form signed by Trisha or myself, please call or email us.

We have had someone step up to be willing to CO-lead next year.  I'm not giving out the name right now, not to be all secretive, but just so that no assumptions are made.  This isnt set in stone, things could change, etc.  The reason I am announcing it at all is because this person IS very technically capable, which means that she would be able to handle the website and internet/electronic side of things.  That is not to say that she would DO all that side, but that she very well understands it and can help other people do it and would be the tech side of the team.


I believe there might be someone out there who was thinking they could possibly step up, but the technical needs of the group were something of a barrier.


If this was you, have no fear!


And come let us know - please - The group will transition much more smoothly if the leaders start learning now, even if their "jobs" wont technically start until May/June.


I have received several emails from members with problems accessing the forum.  So if you can only see the home and calendar tabs:  Please note that Step 4 has two parts.  The first is to register for the site.  The second is to email me, Sonja (renee@philipdom.com).

If you dont email me, I dont know that you have registered and I cant get you activated on the site.  Everyone who wishes to be on this forum must have already registered with us.  This is the way we keep this group completely private and safe for its members.  I apologize if it seems somewhat cumbersome, but the alternative is worse, so please have patience.

Registration is closed for the 2014-2015 4-H year.  We will reopen in August of 2015.
