This year’s theme: Explore the Possibilities...

Congratulations to Maria Hubert of the
Twin Lakes 4-H Club, the winner of this year’s 4-H theme contest! She came up with a great design and theme: “Explore the Possibilities...” .

How appropriate! Yes, 4-H is full of possibilities! Do you like having fun? Learning? Trying new things? Of course you do! That is why 4-H is full of possibilities!

The theme and logo will be on the front of the 2013 4-H Handbook. Look for this logo during fair time and perhaps on t-shirts!

Maria, Thank you for a great theme!

Greetings Perry County 4-H  

Hello Perry County! My name is Megan Andrews and I am very proud to announce that I am the new 4H/ Youth Development Educator! I grew up in the 4-H program as a 13 year member. I have participated in many projects from food science to animal science, and tree identification to tractor driving. During college at West Virginia University I spent my summers working 4-H camps and was a graduate assistant for the West Virginia State 4-H office. Through 4-H I have had the opportunity to travel and meet with our Nation’s leaders. I have gained friends all over my home state of West Virginia of all ages and I hope to do the same here in my new home of Indiana.

I would like to get high involvement with the Jr. Leaders and all those who are of age and really get to know Perry County 4-H. I hope to make it to each of your club meetings over the next few months to meet each of you. Upcoming programs over the next few months include 4-H promotion, Volunteer Training, and Officers Training School.

My office door is always open and I hope to hear from each of you with thoughts, ideas or comments. I hope to keep the 4-H sprit in Perry County alive and well with the hard work of our 4-H’ers, their parents, and countless volunteers. Feel free to contact me at any time at the office (547-7084), cell (812-660-0788) or email (
