Local 4-H to kickoff club year

It’s time to kick-off the new 4-H year in Franklin County! 4-H is a national organization which helps young people develop life-long knowledge and skills to become engaged citizens.

The group uses projects to help teach life skills. These skills include leadership, public speaking, community service, and lots more. For information on how to join this group, see the Aug. 30 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
