4-H interest meeting set


The Sampson County 4-H program, through the Sampson County Cooperative Extension Service, is holding a 4-H Special Interest Club interest meeting Thursday, Jan. 28, from 6 until 7:30 p.m. at the Livestock Facility, 55 Agriculture Place, just off U.S. 421 south.

The club would be for youth ages 5 to 18, and the meeting is open to interested youth and their parents.

Organizers have said you do not have to be a current 4-H member to attend the meeting.

The Sampson County 4-H Special Interest (SPIN Club) will be an opportunity for youth in Sampson County to experience 4-H in different ways aside from the traditional 4-H paths. The SPIN Club will gain focus to develop other club opportunities for 4-H members in the future.

According to Daniel Collins, 4-H agent, this interest meeting will allow organizers to open discussion with youth and parents/guardians about interests beyond livestock and agriculture such as leadership, STEM, theater arts, entomology, recreation, foods and much more.

“Please come and find out more about the Special Interest programs with Sampson County 4-H,” Collins urged.

Snacks will be provided to all attendees!

Those with questions or those interested in attending should contact Collins or 4-H secretary Cindy Nance by Monday, Jan. 25 by calling 910-592-7161 or emailing [email protected] or [email protected]
