Re-enroll in 4honline for the 2021-2022 year!

4honline is rolling over for the 2021-2022 year. This means everyone has gone to “inactive” as of  August 31 (and you won’t get emails about the blog or other upcoming events until you re-enroll!).  We ask each member to go into their profile starting on September 1 at and review their info and make any updates and changes for the new 4-H year. We need to make sure we have up to date health information on each youth member. Once you have done so, don’t forget to click “Submit Enrollment for 2021-2022”.

Please remember that members will NOT be allowed to participate in events until they have re-enrolled for the 2021-2022 year.

If you have any trouble re-enrolling or have questions, please email Serena.

**Please note: we cannot recover passwords for you, but can verify which email address is linked to your 4-H profile. You can then change your password if you have forgotten it. Please contact us if you don’t remember your email. DO NOT create a new profile because this will cause problems within the system. Thanks!

Help Plant the Pollinator Garden at Hagley!

Event Date:  Thursday, October 14th    Arrive 3:30 to 4:00 pm

Rain Date, Tuesday, October 19th          Arrive 3:30 to 4:00 pm


Staff from Hagley Museum and Delaware Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will work with youth who attend to plant the various plants in the garden.  I would anticipate we would conclude by 6:00 pm or before.  If a youth can only come for a portion of time, that is fine.  This is a great volunteer activity for any youth and an educational one, also.

Please let us know if you’d like to attend by registering HERE.
