“4-H Makes the Best Better” is the motto that drives our members to accept the responsibility to make a difference in the community. Each of the 21 traditional school clubs and several project clubs, with 26 local club leaders and many volunteers, are participating in service all over the parish. They have volunteered with the elderly, the state park, veterans, city wide clean up, cancer patients, and many needy in the parish and region. Our many youth and adult volunteers support our 4-H program on a parish, regional, and state level in the areas of service learning, community service, and school enrichment programs.
