We had so much fun last month! We got to name our bunny, "Q-Tip", learn about a few new breeds, and label the parts of a rabbit.

This month we will begin learning about showing rabbits, beginning with Showmanship.
This club will meet at least once a month and is opened to all 4th-12th graders! 

You do not need to have a rabbit to be in the club.

The meeting is December 8th at 4:30pm on the lawn at the 4--H office. 801 Main Street | Perry, GA 31069.



Many of our 4-H'ers have expressed interest in learning new languages and about other cultures! If you are interested in diversity and opening the windows to the world, join us on December 17th for our cultural club meeting. This club will meet once a month and this month we are learning about GERMANY!
