Interest up in joining 4-H, leader says
County funding cuts to 4-H haven't hurt local recruitment efforts, said Washington County 4-H District Representative Liz Dietsche.
In fact, the opposite is true.
"I think it actually made people more aware of it and the interest I think is spiking more," Dietsche said.
The county cut all funding for 4-H earlier this year, and that has meant parents are taking over more responsibilities that paid staff members once held.
