In all, there are over 30 different 4-H Clubs within Middlesex County, and this event showcases the unique aspects of each one. Attendees will have the chance to observe animal and dance demonstrations throughout the event. There will also be opportunities to speak with current 4-H members and volunteer leaders, all so that kids can join the clubs that best reflect their interests and adults can volunteer to help the groups best suited to their skills.

Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios said, “The 4-H program does not just offer a fun and safe environment for Middlesex County’s youth to pursue their interests, it also offers education for life. The program offers classes on leadership and other personal skills, and helps kids to learn responsibility. I know that 4-H has something for every child and teen to learn and enjoy, and I hope to see many new faces at the Open House.”

Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, chair of the Business Development and Education Committee, said: “4-H gives our County’s youth an opportunity to experience a sense of accomplishment and independence. The values they learn in these programs are vital in helping an individual toward success. These values will also help them learn to work well with others. I applaud the 4-H clubs for always helping their members to develop into accomplished young adults.”
