A first-ever Sheridan County 4-H Project Expo showing what 4-H is and opportunities for youths is 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall.

“So often, 4-H carries a stigma it is a youth organization just for farm and ranch kids to learn about cows and cookies, but this couldn’t be further from the truth,” said Jerrica Lind, Sheridan County 4-H educator.  “Any community member who attends the 4-H project expo will learn all the various opportunities 4-H offers for all youths regardless if they live in town or out on the ranch.”

Activity booths will show the projects available through 4-H, and 4-H leaders, members and extension staff members will be available to answer questions.

A bake sale will raise funds to support the county 4-H program.
