Williamsburg County 4-H is excited to announce that September is the kick off month for the 2014-2015 4-H club year! Williamsburg County 4-H has four different opportunities for youth ages five to 19 to join in the club year fun! 4-H clubs can be a special interest project clubs, such as, our Junior Leadership of Williamsburg program lead by Leslee Spivey. Applications will be available for the 2015 class of Junior Leadership of Williamsburg, October 6, with the application deadline set for October 17. Another project club we have is the 4-H Livestock club lead by Carletta Isreal.
This club focuses on the many different livestock animals. One month 4-Hers may study beef cattle and the next month visit a local beef cattle farm. This club meets every third Monday from September to May. The club meets at the Central Fire Department off of Thurgood Marshall Hwy. from 5 to 5:45 p.m.
Another type of 4-H club is the community club. Community clubs are designed to deliver a different educational and fun topic every month. This introduces 4-Hers to many different ideas and activities. Beth Tisdale leads the 4-H Felician Center Club that meets every third Thursday of the month September through November and January through April. The club meets at the Felician Center on Thorne Avenue in Kingstree from 4 to 5PM. Elneicia Williams leads the 4-H Hemingway Community Club. This club meets every third Tuesday of the month at the Hemingway Library from 5 to 6 p.m. The club will meet September and then again in November through the remainder of the school year.
