Chicago Park 4-H Club meets every second Monday of the month at the Chicago Park School at 6:45 p.m.

The first meeting is Sept. 8.

The club offers animal projects in beef cattle, dairy cows, pygmy goats, meat and dairy goats, swine, poultry, rabbits, sheep, horse, and bunny-hopping.

New this year is a primary project just for 5-8 year olds.

Each monthly meeting will include a new activity like Christmas crafts, guide dog puppies, flower arranging and survival skills.

Our club meetings are led by youth officers, elected by the youth members. This year the president is Jeanie King.

Projects are led by volunteer parents and this year the club Leader is Teri Polcene.
