|Welcome From the 4-H Agent|
This year, the 4-H Cloverbud focus is on Ag Literacy/Education. Cloverbud members will explore various areas of agriculture and participate in fun, hands-on activities each month. Also, while meetings will be engaging, members will bring home an activity guide that will enhance what has been discussed.
The East Feliciana 4-H Program is excited to continue to offer the 4-H Cloverbud program to youth in kindergarten to 3rd grade. The 4-H Cloverbud program is an enrichment program offered that fosters the development of life skills that are essential for the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical maturation of the youth involved by providing a unique educational opportunity.

This year's theme for National 4-H Week is #Opportunity4All. Talent is everywhere, but opportunities are not; therefore, we want to help make every kid's potential count.
4-H Activity for the Week:
I want to take the time to personally welcome each of you to the East Feliciana 4-H program. 4-H is more than a club; it is a FAMILY; A family that extends across every parish in the State of Louisiana, every state in the United States, and many international countries. COVID-19 has changed the way many of us conduct many things, but I want to ensure you that the 4‑H Program will keep the safety of everyone involved its #1 priority. This year we will use a variety of methods to conduct club meetings, contests, and events. Therefore, it is necessary to read the rules and all information closely as many will have modifications due to current guidelines to keep each of us safe.
I am excited to have you this year and look forward to a wonderful year this year!
