This weekend, my wife, Pat, and I had the good fortune of attending the Michigan State University Extension 4-H Day with the Lady Spartans. Families, staff members and volunteers of Michigan 4-H attended, adding up to approximately 5,115 members of the crowd.
4-H youth and their families, 4-H volunteers and MSU Extension staff members are celebrated at this annual event, which recognizes the impact of 4-H programs throughout Michigan. At halftime, Calhoun County 4-H youth took center court to lead the crowd in reciting the 4-H pledge.
4-H members and other guests also had the opportunity to enjoy 4-H displays around the Breslin Center concourse. Staff members were on hand to provide information on the many programs that 4-H has to offer on topics including livestock and marketing, international exchanges, natural resources, life skills, early childhood development, robotics and technology.
We had a great turnout and it was an exciting way for MSU Extension to interact with campus and the public.
