Dog Project 4-H’ers gathered Thursday evening at the Extension Office to kick off the new year. 4-H’ers were reminded of the lifelong skills they learn while invested in this project area: responsibility, discipline, patience, and communication skills. Leaders Tracie Sedlacek, Tina Glatch and Whitney Gibbs led the meeting. The 2014 dog workbooks/manuals were distributed.

4-H’ers who were not at the kick-off meeting but are interested in dog project should contact a leader or Amy at the Extension Office for the workout schedules.

For more information on the 4-H Dog Project or how to get involved with the Washington County 4-H program as a member or volunteer, please call the Washington County Extension Office, 319/653-4811.
