  • Get involved in good, wholesome...

    I spent an entire week at 4-H camp with some of Marion County's finest youth. Of course the Adair, Green and Clinton County kids, teens and adults were awesome, too!
    If you have kids and want to expose them to good, wholesome fun and a learning experience, then you can't go wrong by getting them involved in 4-H.
    There's fishing, my venue, which meets the third Tuesday of every month. Want to shoot archery, shotguns, muzzleloaders and rifles the correct and safe way?
    If so, the 4H Shooting Sports Program is for you.
