Luzerne County celebrated 4-H Week, March 17-24. The 4-H program is a non-formal, educational youth development program of the Cooperative Extension System. It is the only youth organization based at land grant universities. The local land grant university is Penn State University. 4-H is open to all youth, ages 5-18. New leaders and members are always welcome. To learn how to become a 4-H leader or member, contact Donna Grey, Penn State Extension Luzerne County, at 825-1701; email LuzerneExt@psu.edu; or visit the office at 16 Luzerne Ave., Suite 200, West Pittston. 4-H member Thomas Boyle, Shavertown, was a first-place award recipient in the Open Trail Horses Senior Rider class at the 2012 State 4-H Horse Show in Harrisburg.
