WESTFIELD—If you enjoy helping youngsters learn about pets and wildlife, the Union County 4-H Third Grade Pet Club has a place for you. The Pet Club is looking for an adult volunteer to help run their meetings, which take place one a mouth on Friday evenings during the school year.
Pet Club members learn about pet care, wild animals, and the environment. They do animal-themed crafts and give presentations about their pets. Guest speakers from a pet store, animal shelter, or veterinarian may visit, and the children may go on a field trip.
The first meeting of the year will be in October. All meetings are held at the county building, 300 North Avenue East (across from the Westfield Diner), in Westfield.
Parents whose children are interested in joining the Thud Grade Pet Club can also volunteer to lead the club. 4-H provides all volunteers with guidance and materials.
4-H is part of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension. The program encourages youth development through hands-on learning. For more information and an application to volunteer as a club leader, contact 4-H Agent James Nichnadowicz at 1-908-654-9854 x2236, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
