My children joined 4-H shortly after we moved to Wisconsin. Through the program both they and I were quickly embraced by our community and formed lasting friendships. The wide reaching offerings have shaped my children's lives and now my grandchildren's. The knowledge and skills they have acquired are invaluable - public speaking, leadership, travel, camp, practical skills including cooking and woodworking, to name just a few. Thank you 4-H!
