Guidelines have been updated through NDSU Ag Affairs which Extension and 4-H programs are a part of.  The guidelines say that facial coverings are strongly recommended however are not required when we have 4-H meetings and events.  I still want to encourage you to social distance when possible and if you are not feeling well, do not attend meetings or events.  I am including the updated ND Smart Restart plans from Ag Affairs.  Please do not be offended if when I attend meetings that you see me in a face covering.  I will continue to support wearing face coverings to ensure that everyone is comfortable.


Here are some upcoming opportunities for your older youth.
