This year’s 4-H Day at the Capitol June 7 attracted approximately 1,000 4-H Club members, adult leaders and 4-H staff members from across Louisiana. The events are designed to give 4-H’ers a chance to learn more about Louisiana government while having fun. The 4-H’ers and adults visited with legislative officials, toured the grounds of the Capitol, and visited sites throughout Baton Rouge as part of an annual educational trip.
