Celebrating National 4-H Week in Charlotte County: Embracing Spirit, Memories, and Community Connection

National 4-H Week is nearly here, and Charlotte County is gearing up for a week of spirited celebration, meaningful connections, and exciting activities that showcase the heart and soul of 4-H. From October 2nd to October 8th, we invite you to join us in exploring nature, creating memories, and bringing our 4-H community even closer together. Let’s dive into the details of the Flora and Fauna-themed scavenger hunt, Spirit Night at Beef o’ Bradys, and our Spirit Days, designed to make this National 4-H Week one to remember!

Unleashing the Explorer Within: The Scavenger Hunt
Our Flora and Fauna Scavenger Hunt is a chance for families to connect with nature while exploring various sites across Charlotte County. Armed with curiosity and a keen eye, participants will embark on a journey to spot and identify different plant and animal species. From native trees to colorful butterflies, each discovery brings us closer to the natural world that thrives around us. Not only is this an educational opportunity, but it’s also a chance for families to bond over shared moments of awe and wonder.

Date: Monday, October 2nd – Sunday, October 8th

This family-friendly event is a chance to come together, share stories from the scavenger hunt, and celebrate the connections we’ve made with the flora and fauna of Charlotte County. With good food, great company, and a lively atmosphere, it’s an evening you won’t want to miss!
