Mecosta County 4-H Council is made up of adult and youth volunteers. Members serve on the council as long as they are in good standing in Mecosta County 4-H. Anyone with a sincere interest in the well-being and promotion of the Mecosta County 4-H Program is eligible to serve on the Council.
So just what does the Council do?
The Council sets policies for the County 4-H Program, raises money for 4-H activities, helps out at events and the fair, plans the annual awards banquet, provides scholarships to 4-H members and leaders and reviews fundraising requests.
Here are just a few examples of all the things our County Council does:
- Annual County Awards Banquet
- Photo Scavenger Hunt (at fair)
- Senior Scholarships
- Plat Book Sales
- sponsors PEP (Proud Equestrian Program)
- ANRS (Agricultural and Natural Resources Stewardship) Days and summer camp programs
- provides resources for members and leaders
- purchased learning animal life skills sets and project books for livestock members
- 4-H Holiday party
- And much, much more.
The 4-H Council meets on the first Tuesday of every month, with the exception of July. The meetings are held at the Mecosta County Services Building, beginning at 6:30 p.m. and are open to the public.
