My last four years at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chenango County have provided something I wish I could have had sooner – a 4-H experience. Although I never had the chance to become a member when I was a kid, I’ve learned that being a part of 4-H is more than projects, awards, and county fair – 4-H is a family. Your club members, leaders, and volunteers become an important part of your 4-H career. The rewards, the experience, and the memories stay with you for the rest of your life.
