The Cape May County 4-H Youth Development Program is pleased to announce that the Communateens 4-H teen club is moving to Ocean City from Cape May Court House. The club will celebrate its new home in the Ocean City Free Public Library with a Welcome to 4-H Party on Thursday, October 22 at 6:00 p.m.
Teens 8th grade and up are invited to join the club, which will meet monthly in Ocean City at the library. The Communateens 4-H Club provides teens in Ocean City and Upper Township the opportunity to make new friends and take part in activities that promote healthy lifestyles and build confidence in leadership and communication skills. There will be a lot of fun interaction with other teens in a safe, social environment.
The club emphasizes healthy living and the environment. Community Service will be a major focus of the club, with many opportunities for volunteerism and giving back to the community. 4-H fieldtrips and conferences will also be available to members, including a regional teen leadership conference in March and national 4-H trips.
One of the club’s leaders, Kalin Axelsson, notes that, “I am excited to encourage youth to get involved and learn more about their own health and the environment while having fun with other teens!” Other club leaders include Annmarie Chelius, chef and professor at Atlantic Cape Community College, and Linda Horner, acting 4-H agent in Cape May County.
On the move to Ocean City, Acting 4-H Agent Horner says, “We have a very strong teen club in the Middle Township area with our Teen Ambassadors 4-H Club. With this move to Ocean City, we hope to expand the opportunity for teens in Upper Township and Ocean City to experience the benefits of the 4-H youth program.”
The meeting will take place at the Ocean City Free Public Library. Call (609) 465-5115 ext. 605 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to pre-register. Learn more about the Cape May County 4-H Youth Development Program at www.cmc4h.com
