Davie County 4-H is forming the Opportunity 4 All 4-H Club, ti be led by 4-H volunteer, Lola Baker, and open, free of charge, to youth ages 8-18 years old.

The goal of the club is to showcase opportunities for youth that can be found throughout Davie County and teach leadership skills and teamwork.

“It is going to be a different kind of club than our other 4-H clubs,” said Danny Lough, 4-H Extension agent for Davie. “Our other 4-H clubs focus on a specific subject area and skill like shooting sports, fishing, or horsemanship. This club is going to cover a wide range of topics and interests. From college readiness and public speaking to robotics and music. It is going to be a really neat experience.”

The club will meet at Riverpark at Cooleemee Falls, “The Bull Hole”, with the first meeting scheduled for Oct. 20 at 5:30 p.m. Each meeting will run for an hour and a half.

“We want to give the families around Cooleemee an opportunity for youth to learn life skills, team build, and have access to information to help prepare their youth for the future,” said Lough. “It’s been many years since we had a 4-H Club in Cooleemee so when Lola called me and said she wanted to start a club, I absolutely was on board.”

All youth must be enrolled in 4-HOnline prior to joining .
