Leaders can commit to an annual club, or dip their toe in the water with a six week western program/spin club. Because leading any club is a big responsibility, please first call our office at 863-674-4092 and ask to speak to either Sonja Crawford (4-H Coordinator), Gwendolyn Ash (4-H Program Assistant) or Liz Shaw (Eastern 4-H Program Assistant).
