“To Make the Better Best” is a familiar motto to anyone who’s been involved in 4-H. Four-H members are making today count by learning and working in various activities that will help all of us tomorrow.

These young people in kindergarten through 13 grade are joining in, getting involved and doing something about the problems and growth of their community and the world around them. Most important of all, they are discovering themselves and life skills that enable them to live fuller lives and to live successfully in our society. They are trying to “make the best better” as the motto states.

Dodge and Jefferson County 4-H members, leaders and supporters are celebrating National 4-H Week, Oct. 6-12.

Four-H is a family affair. It is a youth organization for youth, but mom, dad, brothers and sisters can get involved. Parents and children together plan what they want to do.

Four-H features project work, an important aspect of the program, which allow members to learn more about areas they have an interest in or areas they wish to explore. Four-H also features numerous activities for participants. Activities are on the local, county, and state levels. These activities range from the local club meeting and recreational outings to county activities, State 4-H Youth Conference, Citizenship-Washington Focus, and many more. These provide opportunities for members to continue making the best better.
