October Is 4-H Month

OSWEGO – Oswego County Legislature’s Economic Development and Planning Committee presented a proclamation designating October as 4-H Month in Oswego County.

With the support of the Oswego County Legislature, Cornell Cooperative Extension serves rural and urban youth through 4-H youth development programs.

Since 1921, generations of young people have benefited from these programs, learning life skills to help them become upstanding citizens and serve their communities.

For many, this was the first after-school program they participated in and it provided a different learning experience from the school environment.
