If a child still needs to earn additional hours, contact club leader Connie Meredith at 358-9735 to schedule the hours before the June 1 deadline.


Applications are available for 4-H Summer Camp at Lake Cumberland June 29-July 2. The cost is $150 per child and spots for girls are almost filled. Activities include swimming, boating, archery, arts and crafts, sports, nature and high ropes. Camp is open to LaRue County youth ages 9 to 14, as of Jan. 1. Youth must be in grades 3 to 8 and also meet the age requirement. For an application, stop by the Extension Service office, 807 Old Elizabethtown Road, Hodgenville, or call 358-3401. A $75 deposit is required with the registration form in order to hold the spot for that child. Space is limited.
