Please welcome Andrea Hobson! She is our new County Youth Coordinator in Butler County.  She will start on March 30th. 

"I am excited to serve Butler County as the county youth coordinator. I live in rural Greene with my family. I have served as the 4-H program assistant in Floyd county since 2016. ISU Extension has always been a big part of my life. I was a 4-Her/Clover kid in Worth County for 12 years and it has really shaped who I am today. I also served as the summer program assistant for Butler county one summer and I am greatful to have the opportunity to again be part of Butler County 4-H. I am eager to meet you all in person as soon as we are able and until then I will do what I can to support you and your families during this time." - Andrea Hobson

Each year 4-H members are responsible to the state 4-H program for paying $30 per member for services and a blanket 4-H insurance policy for members, volunteers, and leaders.  Because of this cost yet to the 4-H members to be part of the program, the Butler County Farm Bureau board of directors has voted to contribute $15 for each 4-H club member that is also a member of a Butler County Farm Bureau family.
