INDIANTOWN — Oct. 4-10 is 4-H Club Week in Indiantown. The proclamation was part of the Sept. 24 meeting of the Village of Indiantown Council.
According to the report prepared by Village Clerk Susan A. Owens, 4-H is America’s largest youth development organization, having supported almost 6 million youth across the country thus far. It hosts experiences where young people learn by doing hands-on projects in areas including health, science, agriculture and citizenship. 4-H has also helped youth in Indiantown become confident, independent, resilient and compassionate leaders.
National 4-H week showcases the incredible experiences that 4-H offers young people, and highlights the remarkable 4-H youth in Indiantown who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them. 4-H’s network of 600,000 volunteers and 3,500 professionals provides caring and supportive mentoring to all 4-Hers, helping them to grow into true leaders, entrepreneurs and visionaries.
