National 4-H Week was Oct. 7-13. It’s a very important week to 4-Hers! National 4-H Week is a time, once a year, when everyone sports their club t-shirts and shows their support for 4-H.

This year, the National 4-H Week theme was “Inspire Kids to Do,” which is why the Star Route 4-H Club decided to donate to Man’s Best Friend. Also known as Dee’s Rescue, this animal-loving organization pet-sits, grooms and sets up adoptions for homeless animals.
