Now is the time to sign youth up for the clubs and projects we are currently offering in Boyle County. The 4-H program year runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31, so we are just beginning 2021 in 4-H world. 

To sign up for any of the following, just call (859) 236-4484 or email marycatherine.rowland@uky.edu and we will provide you with a Participant Information/Enrollment Form. 

Complete that form, return it to our office and attend the meetings of your choice. That’s all you need to do to enroll.

Enrollment for all these clubs and projects ends on Dec. 1. If you have not enrolled by that date, you may not participate until the next program year begins in September of 2021.

One of our most popular projects is our Craft Project Group (ages 9-18) which meets first from 4-5 p.m. on-line on Oct. 1. Monthly meetings on the first Thursday of the month will occur through May. You must enroll before a meeting to get your kit of materials and access to the on-line meeting.

The following clubs and projects are meeting in-person at the Boyle County Extension Office (unless COVID-19 recommendations change), following social distancing guidelines and requiring masks. You may complete your PIEF at the first meeting you attend to enroll.
