Valier 4-H members Tyler and Alyssa Raines help hatch new pheasant chicks at East Slope Kennels & Game Birds. A total of 168 pheasants were released into their new habitat in late August.

Every year, National 4-H Week sees millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni come together to celebrate the many positive youth development opportunities offered by 4-H. The theme for this year’s National 4-H Week, Opportunity4All, is a campaign that was created by National 4-H Council to rally support for Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program and identify solutions to eliminate the opportunity gap that affects 55 million kids across America.

The Valierian and local and area businesses are recognizing the Pondera 4-H Clubs in the Valier area in this week’s issue!
