    I'm in 4-H, and it's my life for the most part! I do horticulture, crochet, fiber arts, dairy goats, market lambs, fiber rabbits, and of course, chickens. I'm in the top five poultry show people in the state of Oregon. I'm grand-champion in Dairy goats, and I already posted this and more on another thread that was exactly the same.
    We have a very large club, but we don't do much in the way of community service, except in the family circles. For instance, when our goat barn needed painting, the club came out and did it, and that put some money in our account.
    I'm secretary of our club, and though president sounds like they would do the most...not so much. My co-secretary and I do a lot of work, including planning the meeting, recording who does what, recording minutes, and basically running the meeting. In fact, tonight I'm holding a Small-Animal clinic, all about how to show chickens and rabbits. We don't have any cavies in our club, and we don't have any cows or pigs either. But we have everything else! Except dogs and horses, but in our neck of the woods, horse 4-H is downright dangerous, and dog 4-H doesn't really happen at all. It's a few days before everything else.
    This will be my third year of 4-H running my life. [​IMG]

    I have been in 4-h for 8 years. I am the president of my club. I show horses and am starting to show sheep cows and chickens( the only way my mom would let me get a rooster). My club is all girls except me. We go to horse shows have meetings, clean up the fair grounds, do fundraisers.

    4-h is the reason the way i am.

    I've been in 4-H for 8 years.
    I've been president and secretary of the Rabbit club.
    I show rabbits, poultry, and horse and pony.
    I also do photography and scrapbooking.
    I think 4-H is a great club for all children to get in. It keeps me busy in the summer and i make new friends all the time.

    Can you be in more than 1 club at a time?

    Yes, if for example one club is entirely based on pigs, but you want to show chickens too, so you join the chicken club.

    Ooo ok and I'm guessing by the previous responses that a club could specialize in more than 1 thing? And if they are (for example, chickens, pigs and horses) can you participate in only the chicken part?

    Sorry if my questions are stupid I'm just really ignorant on the subject.
