4-H’s Cloverbud Club geared to third-graders

Ascension Parish 4-H Cloverbuds Club held its first meeting Oct. 3 at LSU Agricultural Center’s 4-H Youth Development office at Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.

All Ascension Parish third-graders are eligible to join Cloverbud Club. Coordinator and volunteer Kory Hammatt assisted the kids in painting pumpkins as part of a Halloween-themed art-activity.

The Ascension Parish 4-H Youth Development Program is an educational program of the LSU AgCenter. Children ages 9-19 can participate in the Ascension Parish 4-H Youth Development Program.

The Cloverbud Club exposes third-graders to educational activities in preparation of the larger 4-H program.

Ascension 4-H Cloverbuds’ next meeting is Nov. 7. Children will package shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child during the November meeting.

At the Dec. 5 meeting, members are set to create holiday cards and decorate cookies for distributions to Ascension-area assisted living residents.
