New Belknap County 4-H Program leaders complete training

LACONIA — Amy Jennings, 4-H Program Coordinator for Belknap County UNH Cooperative Extension, says that one of the things that make the 4-H Youth Development Program so special are the caring adult mentors who give of their time and energy to practice positive youth development programs.
She says that so far this year, five new 4-H organizational leaders have completed the screening and training process in order to make 4-H programming available to more youth in Belknap County.
Dennis Manning of Tilton will be starting a new 4-H club focusing on bee keeping. Jennifer Burns of Barnstead will also be starting a new Equestrian focused 4-H Club. Finally, George Chase of Ashland has added his mentoring talents to the New Hampton Hustlers 4-H Club.
Also recently completing the screening and training process are Nan Brown of Belmont who works with the 4-H Teen Believers in Laconia and Bonnie Lowe who works with the Winnisquam Whinnies 4-H Club in Tilton.
