Celebrating 100 Years of 4-H

The Door County Historical Society will host its monthly dinner program, “100 Years of 4-H in Door County,” presented by 4-H Youth Development Director Dawn Vandevoort on May 21 at the Log Den Restaurant.

The history of 4-H is a story of youth education, community pride, responsibility, personal leadership and volunteerism. While constantly changing to meet the evolving needs of young people today, most of the original concepts, philosophies and proven strengths remain unchanged. Youth in Door County have participated in 4-H Clubs and programs for 100 years, and now it’s time to celebrate. The presentation highlights the growth and changes to meet the needs of the county’s youth, and historical information with many photos from over the years. Guests will have an opportunity to help identify individuals in the photos and are encouraged to bring their own memorabilia.

The dinner includes a choice of pork tenderloin with Door County port cherry reduction sauce and rice; chicken Dianne and rice; or vegetable lasagna. Dinner and program fees are $22 for members and $26 for guests. Doors open at 5:30 pm, with dinner beginning at 6 pm. The Log Den Restaurant is located at 6626 Hwy 42 between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor.
