For the 76th consecutive year, millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni across the country are celebrating National 4-H Week, which runs from Oct. 7-13.

Macon County 4-H will leverage National 4-H Week this year by showcasing the incredible experiences that 4-H offers young people, and will highlight the remarkable 4-H youth in our community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them.

The 4-H flag will be flown at the Macon County Court House for National 4-H week.

A proclamation was issued by Macon County Mayor Steve Jones, and there will also be a 4-H display at Tractor Supply Company in Lafayette.

One way to support Macon County 4-H is to donate at Tractor Supply Company with the purchase of paper clover sales that will take place through Oct. 15. The funds are used for 4-H members to attend camps, conferences, and leadership opportunities.

"The 4-H program continues to make a huge impact on the youth in Macon County by providing activities and events that teach life skills," Macon County Extension Agent Kayla Jenkins said. "The skills gained help the 4-H members develop into successful young people."

In Macon County, more than 1300 4-H youth and volunteers from the community are involved in 4 H by participating in school clubs, project groups, and judging teams.
