[OCT. 3, 2003]  Logan County 4-H'ers are joining nearly 7 million boys and girls nationwide in observing National 4-H Week, Oct. 5-11.

In Logan County, there are over 80 volunteer leaders working with more than 300 4-H members. These volunteers are among the more than 500,000 leaders nationwide who each contributed about 220 hours of service last year.

The 4-H program, conducted locally by University of Illinois Extension, is open to boys and girls ages 8-19, wherever they live. Clubs consist of five or more members and have meetings six or more times per year. Programs are conducted in the 3,150 counties of the United States, the District of Columbia and six territories.

For more information on how you can become involved and start your own 4-H club, contact the Logan County Extension office at 732-8289.

The 4-H program is open to all youth between the ages of 8 and 19, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex or disability.
