2.      If your child would like to join, you will notify the Club Leader and they will give you a New Member 4-H Enrollment packet to complete by the December 1st registration deadline.  There is a 1:10 youth to adult ratio for membership, so there is a maximum number of youth who may join.  Members are not considered active until they both enrolled in the 4hOnline Program and have paid their dues. Each club will provide a Yearly Club Plan to their members before the December 1st meeting, so that families can plan for the fun activities ahead. More information may be found at
