NORWICH – In light of national 4-H week, Chenango County 4-H teamed up with the Chenango County Historical Society on Sunday to commend outstanding efforts of 4-H members of both past and present.
The Chenango 4-H kicked off its annual Achievement Day on Sunday, recognizing projects carried out by its members over the course of the year. According to Chenango 4-H Coordinator Janet Pfromm, Achievement Day is not only a chane to laud the work of the 13 clubs that make up the Chenango County chapter, but also an opportunity to promote the mission of 4-H and tout its role in helping to build a more vibrant community.
The local 4-H, under the auspices of the Cornell University Cooperative Extension, connects local youth to learning experiences through camps, after-school programs, and various hands-on activities.
“Each year, this is our way of recognizing our top performing clubs,” Pfromm said. “Out of our 205-membership, we’re recognizing about two-thirds of them for their achievements this year.”
