In regards to Fall 2020...


Hello to our current (and interested) Bainbridge Island 4-H families,

Whether you are sewing masks, cooking in the kitchen, working in your garden and feeding chickens, taking your dog on walks or photographing your surroundings, we hope you're practicing the four H's and engaging your head, your heart, your hands, and your health this summer.

Washington State 4-H Youth Development stopped all activities in March and our club has not held project meetings since then.  Both the Kitsap County Fair and Washington State Fair were cancelled for the summer.  As stated by Washington State 4-H, "Washington 4-H Youth Development Program is not meeting face-to-face until your county reaches Phase 4.  When we are in Phase 4, some social distancing and other requirements will need to be followed for in-person activities."

Bainbridge Island 4-H has no meetings scheduled at this time.  We will keep members apprised as we receive updates from Kitsap County 4-H and Washington State 4-H.  If you are interested in joining Bainbridge Island 4-H in the future, please email your contact information and we will keep you informed of a meeting.

Thank you,

Bainbridge Island 4-H
