An open house atmosphere is planned for this year’s 4-H Discovery Day to be held Oct. 12 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Oneida County Senior Center, 100 W. Keenan St, Rhinelander.
Scheduled are nine different workshop sessions for older youth in third grade and up, and three different sessions for youth in grades K to 2.
Older youth will be able to choose from three different options available during each of the 3 workshop timeslots. Session 1 (9:00 to 9:45 a.m.) choices are: Line Dance, Shooting Sports, and Photography (bring a camera).
Session 2 (9:45 to 10:30 a.m.) choices include Model Rockets, Crocheting, and Dog Care.
The third session (10:45 to 11:30 a.m.) offers a choice of Ice Fishing, Duct Tape crafts and Sign Language.
Younger youth can attend all three sessions if they choose: Leaf Identification (Session 1), Creating a Leaf Decoration (Session 2) and Kitchen Chemistry (Session 3).
For youth not currently enrolled in 4-H, there is a $2 registration fee that covers 1 to 3 workshop sessions plus a healthy snack.
Some workshop sessions have a size limit and will be filled on a “first come first-served” basis.
Everyone and anyone are welcome to come during the morning and watch the workshops in action, talk to leaders in the 4-H program, and learn about the value in becoming a 4-H member or volunteer.
