National 4-H Week

This Sunday, October 10, the Busy Bees are hosting a Food Pantry Drive for personal hygiene items. A donation box will be located at the Kensington Community Store and the 4-H members will also be doing porch pick-ups around 3:00pm on Sunday afternoon. Please consider donating items such as: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body soaps, q-tips, cotton balls, feminine products, and baby items. The Busy Bees 4-H Club is always looking for ways to help our community. Please contact leaders Marlene Nelson or Erica Barnes and let us know what we can do for you.

Raising great kids is a challenging task, but it’s easier when you have a team of people behind you. 4-H clubs are groups of families that do just that. Through working together, families share knowledge and interests to help kids learn practical skills and important values. Kansas 4-H is open to youth between the ages of 7 and 19. The new 4-H year starts in October, so many prefer to join 4-H at the start of the school year. 4-H enrollment, however, is open year round, so youth can join any time. In order to show at the county fair you must be enrolled by May 1st.

October 3-10, 2021 is National 4-H Week and the Post Rock District has challenged its clubs to show their Spark for 4-H! You should notice kids and parents in the community posting photos to their social media. The kids will also be presenting at their schools and encouraging their classmates to join the club!

Mat Makers

Mat makers will meet October 23, from 9-12, at St. John a Lutheran Church. Join us if you can!
