"Learn by Doing" goes virtual. Looking for socially-distanced and/or virtual extracurricular activities? Oak Town 4-H is welcoming new (and old) families to our re-imagined community club. This year our club of 40-ish youth ages 5-18 gather in a community club emphasizing belonging and community impact. Smaller groups meet as "projects" typically around a learning objective, but we are developing groups around making friends with shared interests.
