Clay County 4-H starts a new year

As school starts it’s probably too late to join fall sports, the marching band, or cheerleading.  However, Clay County 4-H is welcoming new members any day — every day — and has a full calendar of events planned for the fall. With more than 10,000 participants last year, the local 4-H program is one of largest in the state and wants to grow in 2018.
