4-H provides a wealth of opportunities for youth to explore their interests, develop into responsible citizens, and become strong community leaders.  Allamakee County 4-H currently has eight traditional 4-H clubs with over 200 enrolled members. Our program also has three project area interest groups including Postville Garden Club, Horse Project, and Dog Project. Our county has a strong Clover Kids program with four groups with over 80 enrolled Clover Kids.    
These activities are supported by the Allamakee County 4-H Circle of Friends fund, which was established in 2002 to secure financial support for the Allamakee County 4-H program.  Your support is very vital to our program and we cannot do it without your help!  Please consider becoming a member of the 4-H Circle of Friends.
