Marquette County 4H & UPAWS Host Service Club

Marquette County 4-H partnered with UPAWS to create an event to help kids get involved in giving back to the community.

“The kids gain knowledge about animals and safety and just being a pet owner,” said 4H Leader Amanda Cady, “They gain companionship from kids who have a common interest. They get to meet kids, and they are giving back to the community, which is always a good feeling.”

The Community Service Club meetings will be hosted every second Tuesday of each month at UPAWS. Ages 5-19 are invited, and it is free. To inquire, contact Amanda Cady at  amandacady.media@gmail.com

The Marquette County 4-H hosts clubs and learning experiences for all kinds of interests for kids 5 through 19 years old. If you want to get your kids involved in 4-H, email Amanda Cady at amandacady.media@gmail.com or the Marquette County 4-H Facebook page here.
