Bienville Parish 4-H gearing up for new school year

Come find your spark in Cloverbuds for kindergarten to third graders or become an active 4-H member for 4 th grade to Seniors in high school.

4-H has been around since 1902. It started as an agricultural club that taught teens new techniques to bring back to the home and the farm. It is so much more than that in 2023 for all ages. Bienville Parish will begin enrollment meetings in September.

Are you homeschooled? Well, you have the opportunity to become part of the Community Club. What about Kindergarten to 3 rd graders can become a member of Cloverbuds. These clubs meet monthly at the Castor Community Center. Come join all the fun on September 11, 2023, at the Castor Community Club. Cloverbuds meeting will be at 5:00 PM and Community Club Meeting at 5:30 PM. If you are a Bienville Parish Student, you can join 4-H at your school. 4-H is offered at every school in the parish.
