Community Groups » Rouleau 4-H Club
4-H helps young people discover where they shine - by letting them explore what they love, discover what they don't and try new things.
The program targets youth ages 6-21 as well as adults to lead the program, making it a great family based activity that involves the entire community. The 4-H motto is to learn to do by doing and the program gives youths the opportunity to sit down with someone who can show them how to do it, things that they are interested in.
The Rouleau 4-H club offers a variety of projects and these projects are chosen by the interest of the youth in and around the community and will change every year. Below is a list of projects chosen this year and a brief description of what is happening in each.
The drama group is working on a one act play that they are going to perform in May. The play is called " Happily Ever After" and it is about four pairs of disgruntled fairy tale characters competing on a game show for the chance to live happily ever after. Little do they know that the host of the show, the Wicked Witch, isn't about to let it happen.
The fishing group has been learning about the different types of fish and fishing equipment the last few months. They will also be learning the proper way to clean and cook fish. The fishing group will be putting their newly learned knowledge into practice when they go on an off shore fishing trip in the spring.
