KENTON - Hardin County 4-H held their 2013 Info Fair on Tuesday, March 5, to kick off the 2013 4H season. Community professionals joined 4-H members in the Community Building at the Hardin County Fairgrounds to welcome those interested in becoming a member of 4-H. Current 4-H members displayed the projects their 2012 projects and the community members spoke with children and parents about how the 4-H experience can lead to success later in life.

Hardin County has many 4-H clubs, including several in Ada, and chances are there is one in your community! Here are two ways your student can join 4-H:
