Fall is here, which also means that there are lots of fun activities for families to take part in. One event that I hope you and your family will consider is our 3rd annual Spooky Science event on Saturday, October 20th from 6:00-7:00 pm at the Montgomery County 4-H Fairgrounds.
This FREE event is open to all ages and we encourage families to bring their youth in Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat at all of our fun Spooky Science stations. There will also be livestock animals there for families to learn about. We will be serving a FREE chili dinner and have hayrides starting at 6:45 pm. Youth do not have to be in 4-H to attend. We welcome all families and community members of Montgomery County to come out for a fun and relaxing evening together.
New for this year, we will have other organizations be a part of the fun. We are excited to welcome the Carnegie Museum, Crawfordsville District Public Library, Rotary Jail, and Youth Services Bureau to our community-wide event. They too will have a Spooky Science station and information about how they serve community members of Montgomery County.
Interested in joining 4-H or want to learn more about what this great program offers? Then come out to Spooky Science and talk to youth that are already involved in the program and learn about their unique 4-H experiences. You can also meet our hardworking volunteers who help lead the program.
4-H enrollment is from October 1st to January 15th. Don’t delay in joining such a great youth development program that provides youth with the life skills that they need now and in the years to come.
