VAN WERT — The Van Wert County 4-H Exchange Club members would like to invite 4-H members to join our club. There are many opportunities to join the Exchange club. Our purpose is to promote Van Wert County 4-H both at home and with other states.

Each summer the club travels to or hosts 4-Hers from other states to exchange ideas, cultures and make new friends. The exchange have hosted and traveled to Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, and Arkansas. The club is also committed to the community which they host the holiday light Show. It was started as both a fund raiser and an opportunity to provide the community with a family-oriented, low-cost holiday activity.

The club also does two pork barbecue dinner fundraisers in the spring and fall to fund their endeavors. This is a family-oriented organization with members, parents and siblings actively participating. Our club has most of our work in end of November and weekends in December. The club is open to any youth age 13-18.

If interested in connecting with our club please contact Cindy at (419) 203-1413 or Jay at (419) 203-2234.
