[March 04, 2013]
The Tri-County Rocketeers 4-H
Club extends an invitation to youth ages 8 to 18 to join their club.
Boys and girls, young men and ladies who have an interest in
building rockets, learning about aerodynamics, love new adventures
and learn best by doing are welcome to become a part of this new
club. The Tri-County Rocketeers is for youth living in McLean,
Tazewell and Logan counties.
Youth interested in joining the club may attend an informational
meeting scheduled for March 9 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the old
Armington High School gym. Parents or mentors are encouraged to plan
on attending this meeting also. The group will discuss goals and
future meeting dates. Everyone is invited to bring along a rocket to
work on or a completed one to show and tell about. The gym is at the
corner of South Griffith and West Britt streets in Armington.
Rodman, a 4-H volunteer, is leading the group. Rodman's experience
working with youth, building rockets and teaching others is a great
combination for a fantastic club experience. The 4-H program is well
known for providing positive quality learning experiences for youth.
Enrollment forms will be available at the meeting. The Tazewell
County Extension office will handle all of the registration and
coordination of the club. An annual 4-H program fee of $20 is
charged per child, with a family cap of $50. Current 4-H members in
traditional 4-H clubs or other special interest clubs will need to
indicate in which county their program fee has been paid.
