To be eligible for the 2018-2019 Exchange round, a 4-H member needs to be 13 years of age on October 1, 2017. On the other end, a 4-H member cannot be older than a Senior in High School during the last year of the round. So if a 4-H member is scheduled to graduate in May of 2018, they are too old for the 4-H Exchange group.

for a GHOULISH GOODTIME!!
The Happy Havre 4-H Club is hosting a multi-county Halloween Party on Saturday, October 28th from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Hockey Ice Dome in Havre.
For a fun time there will be ice skating, costume contest, limbo, and hayrides. Tacos in a bag is the food of choice.
Because there is a charge for the Ice Dome, a free-will offering will be collected at the door to help defray that cost.
Also, if you do not have ice skates, you can rent a pair for just a $1.
Invite your friends (including non-4-Hers) and come out to this family event. Parents are encouraged to come with their kids!!!
