Any local folk want to chime in? What is 4H anyway and what do you have to do to get involved
I was in 4H Club in Texas in middle school and all the way through high school. I was the kid-president of our small town chapter for a year. 4H is similar to FFA. Kids have projects (show animals, photography, crafts, homesteading projects, shooting sports) and participate in local competitions like county fairs (or a higher level - if you really get into it).
I think to be a member, you have to be a kid, parent, or volunteer as a club manager. To get involved in Texas, we would contact our county Extension Agent (part of the Texas A&M University system) and ask when the club meets, where, and what you can do to become a member.
In your case, if you have kids, you can get them involved OR perhaps they allow volunteers who help the club manager to be "members."
Sorry that I'm not local to you, but I hope that info helps!
