Lawrence County 4-H, which is celebrating its centennial anniversary, will be the topic of discussion at the next meeting of the Lawrence County Historical Society on Monday, November 27, 7:00 p.m., at the History Center in Lawrenceville.

Local 4-H leaders and members will attend to present a program on the history of the organization and its many activities over the past 100 years.

Illinois 4-H's origins date back as far as 1899 with a "Boy's Corn Club" in Macoupin County, Illinois. The first known 4-H club for both boys and girls was started in 1902 in Clark County, Ohio. Our local 4/-H program was started in 1923 by Farm Advisor H.C. Wheeler.

The program is free and open to the public.
