A group of Vignes community members learning about canning in the fall of 1918 is to thank for an enduring youth movement in the area being celebrated by the Door County Historical Society on Sunday. That group would become the county’s first 4-H club, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Door County UW-Extension 4-H Educator Dawn Vandevoort will discuss how the organization has evolved to meet the needs of their youth over the years through photos and historical accounts. Vandevoort says while the focus has changed for some of the groups, she is proud of the impact Door County 4-H’s seven clubs have had on their communities.
Vandevoort hopes attendees to Sunday’s Door County Historical Society dinner bring their 4-H memorabilia and photos along to show off. You can learn more about the event by visiting this story online.
