Dear 4-H Supporter,

This year, NC 4-H is celebrating our centennial! Wow, Can you believe 100

years of youth development in NC! Guilford County, 4-H began in 1911 as

North Carolina’s first Tomato Canning Club for girls. Even though the faces

and activities of 4-H have changed over the years; the need for positive youth

development has remained the same. Leadership, citizenship, and life skills

are learned through presentations, public speaking, fashion revue, projects,

club activities, school enrichment programs, camp and summer fun

workshops. Thank you all for supporting our efforts to provide positive youth

development for our youth of Guilford County!

All the proceeds of our 4-H Plant Sale will go to reduce the cost of programs

such as: 4-H Camp, 4-H Congress and 4-H Summer Fun workshops for

Guilford County youth. These activities give our youth an opportunity to

acquire skills that will last them a lifetime. Again, thank you for supporting
