We will talk a little bit about what 4-H is, and tell you about the pledge we recite at meetings. We will learn the pledge, and recite it at the beginning of each of your meetings.

We are planning to do some different activities, so if you attended last year, it shouldn 't be a repeat of the same things. You will be able to bring any or all of these projects to exhibit at the fair.
