-A A +A

Each year the Levy County 4-H opens its year by having a Roundup.  Round-up marks the official first day of the 4-H year for Levy County youth and volunteers.  This year it will be on Saturday, Aug. 27.
The morning will begin at 8 a.m. with the Hartley Barbecue contestants registering to compete for making the best barbecue chicken.  There are three age categories and the winners receive checks and awards.  For more information on the Barbecue contest please contact Muriel or Lacy at 486-5131.
At about 10 a.m. the project book displays will be set up and all youth and adults will be able to see the project areas that are offered by the Levy County 4-H.  There will also be displays made by each of the 4-H Clubs in Levy County.  The clubs will be displaying what their club offers and the activities their club participated in last year.  
Levy County 4-H is open to all youth ages 5 – 18 (as of Sept.1, 2010) without regard to race, creed, color, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations.  
All adults wishing to help individual clubs or specific activities are encouraged to attend and see what each club has to offer.  There are also county wide clubs that will be offering demonstrations and the opportunity to sign up and help out with the activities and events they participate in.
The morning will culminate with a barbecue chicken lunch provided by the Levy County 4-H.
