4-H County Appreciation cookout cancelled in the wake of deadly storms

FERNDALE, Ark. -- The 4-H County Appreciation cookout set for Saturday at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center has been cancelled.

“It has been a very difficult week for Arkansas,” said Jack Boles, executive director of the Arkansas 4-H Foundation. “We believe it’s appropriate to hold off on celebrations for the moment as we all recover from the events of April 27.”

The Arkansas 4-H Foundation supports the youth development work of the 4-H program in Arkansas.

The 4-H Youth Development Program in Arkansas is the youth outreach program of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, Cooperative Extension Service and the United States Department of Agriculture. Foundation-supported services are offered to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, marital or veteran status, and the Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
