County Club Day

County Club Day is set to help 4-H'ers demonstrate the values of the 4-H and Youth program through public presentations and evaluation of demonstrations, illustrated talks, and meeting procedures. It also is to provide additional opportunity for 4-H'ers to participate in music and drama and share their talents. County Club Day is a way to present a favorable image to the public to promote 4-H.
