Celebrate National 4-H Week October 7-13

October 7-13 is National 4-H Week, and Fillmore County is celebrating the 4-H youth who have made an impact on the community, and are stepping up to the challenges of a complex and changing world.  4-H youth are a living breathing, culture-changing revolution for doing the right thing, breaking through obstacles and pushing our country forward by making a measurable difference right where they live.

During 4-H Week  in Fillmore County youth will be participating in fun events:
