It's that time of year again! We are now accepting orders for our Fall Commodity Fundraiser. You have the opportunity to purchase Louisiana grown sweet potatoes, pecans and satsumas.
Your support during this fundraiser is much appreciated, as it will allow the 4-H program to provide opportunities for youth to grow, see the world around them, provide awards, help offset transportation costs to various events and purchase educational materials to fulfill the 4-H Mission.
4-H civic engagement programs empower young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world. The East Feliciana 4-H Program is excited to announce they will be using iCivics, a non-profit organization that provides free educational online games and lesson to promote civic education and encourages students to become active citizens.
