Fayette County 4-H & Youth

Local Highlights

April 6, 2020

Most Iowa State University Extension and Outreach events throughout the state March 16 through May 31 have been canceled. When possible, some activities may be conducted virtually using video or teleconferencing.  For information on specific events, please contact the ISU Extension and Outreach Fayette County Office. ISU Extension and Outreach is still open for business, said John D. Lawrence, vice president for extension and outreach. Although the Fayette County Office is closed to the public, leave a message and someone will get back to you as quickly as possible.   “Our goal is to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus, by eliminating large gatherings and practicing social distancing,” Lawrence said.  “The health and safety of Iowans is our greatest concern. We all have to do our part and be willing to change our plans for the greater good. We will get through this,” Lawrence said.

The 2020 Youth 4-H Conference to be held June 30-July 2 has been cancelled.  According to Haley Jones, Leadership & Civic Engagement Specialist from the State 4-H Office, “Both our state 4-H team and our Extension administration team consulted on this topic and we feel that it is the appropriate decision to make in light of COVID-19.”

State 4-H is looking into turning the Animal Science Round Up into a possible virtual experiences, so please stay tuned. Continue collecting “Pop Tabs for Jacy.” Turn them into the Fayette County Extension Office and we will make sure they get to the state office at some point in time.

The Iowa State 4-H Office cancelled all swine, sheep and meat goat weigh-ins across the state. Our number one priority for Iowa 4-H is the safety of our own staff, 4-H volunteers, 4-H families and partners. We take serving Iowan's seriously and actions like these demonstrate our commitment to the health and safety of our community and staff.
