County 4-H Council Meetings
The health and safety of all 4-H members, volunteers, parents, guests, and staff is the top priority of Kansas 4-H. To help reduce the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, please read the following guidelines from the Kansas Department of Health & Environment and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These guidelines should be followed to protect yourself and others during 4-H Club meetings and other 4-H programs.
Congratulations to Osage County 4-H mom, Keri Harris! Keri is in the spotlight for the great volunteer work that she's been doing for the community by making masks. She was interviewed for the Now That's Rural news story by Ron Wilson, director of the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development at Kansas State University. At the time of the interview, Keri had made over 800 masks, but now she's made over 1,000! Thanks for all that you do, Keri!
