On the third Tuesday of each month from September through May, 4-Hers from around the county gather for our County Council meeting. Our County Council is a group of 4-Hers representing each of our clubs who gather to discuss upcoming events, club challenges and successes, county-wide programs and projects, fundraising opportunities, and more. In addition to these business meetings, our County Council meeting includes a recreational activity to promote socialization between members, as well as a short educational activity that might introduce new projects, teach professional development skills like public speaking, or help our members prepare for events like the Alachua County Youth Fair. Another great part about County Council is that a different 4-H club hosts the meal each month. This allows all of our 4-Hers throughout the county to gather around the table together and encourages belonging in our 4-H program.
If you’d like to attend County Council, dinner starts at 6pm, and the business meeting starts at 6:30pm. These meetings are held at the Alachua County Extension Office unless otherwise noted.
