Wexford County 4-H Council

Council exists to support the growth of countywide 4-H and youth development opportunities. Members fund raise, provide scholarships, and plan year-round activities to support our 4-H community. Youth, parents, volunteers and community members are welcome to attend. The group meets bi-monthly, on the fourth Tuesday of every odd month, from 5:30-7, at the Wexford County MSU Extension office at Baker College in Cadillac. 

Current officers include Jill Benson, Janet Dunlap, Holly Fessler, and Tabby Fessler.
