4-H Informational Meeting Tonight at East Amherst Fire Hall
4-H Informational Meeting Tonight at East Amherst Fire Hall

Erie County Legislator Edward Rath and Cornell Cooperative Extension – Erie County are pleased to announce that an informational meeting to highlight the many exciting programs available through 4-H will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012 at East Amherst Fire Company, 9100 Transit Road, East Amherst, NY, 14051. Reservations are not required and refreshments will be served. 4-H families and coordinators will be available to answer questions and share their experiences about being a member of 4-H.

“This is a great opportunity for parents and kids to learn more about the specific programs offered by 4-H. I believe many Erie County residents do not fully realize the excellent programming available through 4-h,” said Legislator Rath. “The benefits of joining 4-H continue from early childhood through the formative adolescence years. Overall, kids in 4-H are more responsible and successful, and learn important life skills in programs which they enjoy and are passionate about.”

“The 4-H program in Erie County is alive and strong.  With more than 600 youth members in our county for 2012, we are eager to share the many opportunities with the community and explain how to get involved for 2013.  New youth members are being welcomed for the new program year and opportunities, training and support for new adult volunteer leaders is also being offered.   4-Hers can participate in clubs or as independent members and can reside in any part of the county; rural, suburban, and urban settings.  The possibilities are endless and foster an environment of learning, citizenship, inclusion, and leadership development,” said Laurie Korb, 4-H Community Educator.

With an extensive list of opportunities available to youths, ages 5-19, the informational meeting will discuss what programs are offered and how to get involved.

For information about the meeting or to get involved in 4-H, please contact Legislator Rath at 858-8676 or email edward.rath@erie.gov, or Laurie Korb at 652-5400 ext. 130 or emailllk47@cornell.edu
