Some Pennsylvania youth, through FFA and 4-H, are learning about farm safety and health in a unique way.
Cumberland County 4-H members, volunteers, and families sang carols for residents at Claremont Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on December 7, 2015.
PA 4-H is now a certifying organization to receive acknowledgement from the President of the United States for dedication of volunteer service.
The annual 4-H Achievement Banquet was held on Monday October 12 at the Highland Vue Farms. Teen Leadership Council members served as Masters of Ceremonies for the evening.
The 4-H Lock=In was held on October 23 at the Extension Office.
Certainly having a volunteer who has served for 50 years is a fantastic achievement but to have three volunteers reach 50 years is exceptional. Sandy Long, Barb Rebert and Galen Smith were honored at the recent Cumberland County 4-H Achievement Night held at Highland Vue Farms, Newville. All three long time 4-H members went directly from being a member to being a leader.
Area youth, ages 8-12, are invited to join us for our annual 4-H Lock-In on October 23 from 6PM-11PM at the Cumberland County Extension Office in Carlisle. This event is open to ALL youth ages 8-12.
The next generation of agricultural producers learned about farm safety strategies through the Farm Safety and Health Quiz Bowl completion. Four teams of 4-H youth from throughout the state displayed their knowledge during the semi-final round of competition on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at Ag Progress Days.
From learning about insects and fruits and vegetables to making pizza and butter, our 27 Ag Science Campers were busy little bees during camp.
Look for next year’s event!
Look for your chance to attend these events next year!
When you think of teens, you might not think of safety but that is changing because some Pennsylvania’s youth are proving that safety is an important part of rural work and life. Four FFA teams and four 4-H teams from across the commonwealth displayed a wealth of knowledge during the Pennsylvania State University Farm Safety and Health Quiz Bowl, held at the 2015 PA Farm Show on Wednesday, January 14.
“Cumberland County 4-H members, volunteers, and families spread holiday cheer with the residents of Claremont Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Carlisle. Christmas carols were sang and cards were given to residents from the 4-H members.”
Cumberland County 4-H teen leaders are planning a spooky fun time at this year's 4-H Lock-In! The Halloween-themed event, which takes place on October 31 at the Cumberland County Extension Office in Carlisle, will include activities such as crafts, caramel apple making, pumpkin decorating, team games, and movies. Registration is due by October 24.
Join us for breakfast as we recognize outstanding 4-H achievements.
Teens and safety rarely go hand in hand, but the next generation of agricultural producers is proving that safety is an important part of rural work and life.
The 4-H livestock sale was held 6:00PM Monday night at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds.
The Cumberland County Extension Board of Directors awarded the 2014 Rosemarie Peiffer 4-H Educational Award to Benjamin Jackson at their June 3, 2014 meeting.
