WESTFIELD—For youngsters who are fascinated by pioneers, frontier living, and life in the American colonies, the Union County 4-H Living History Club offers a year packed with hands-on fun. Living History members get to invent their own historical character from the 18th and early 19th centuries, complete with authentic period costumes and accessories. The club meets once a month during the school year, starting in October.
The Union County 4-H Living History Club is for boys and girls in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. It is run by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension.
The Living History Club meets at the Union County Services Building, 300 North Avenue East (across from the Westfield Diner) in Westfield. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The first meeting is on Oct. 10.
To sign up or get more information, contact the Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Department at 908-654-9854 and ask for Ellen.
