    Thank you for supporting our Youth!

    Rain or shine! Arrive any time from 11:15am onwards. Parking is in the vineyard behind the winery. On grass so dress accordingly. 4-H'ers will be ready to greet you and assist those with mobility issues to make their way to the main tent. 

    Sit, relax, and enjoy a wide selection of mini fair food favorites including - but definitely not limited to - Philly cheese steak, pulled pork parfaits, falafel, roast corn, candied popcorn and funnel cake.  Milkshakes will be provided by the Dutchess County Dairy Committee. Lemonade and Lime Rickey provided or purchase wine and beer from the winery (not served by 4-H'ers). 

    Activities start at 11:30am. Lunch is in the main tent overlooking the lake. Take the option to wander around numerous stations where 4-H'ers will be providing demonstrations and will talk to you about what they do. Many animals available for photo ops for adults and kids alike, and hands-on activities such as archery.  And why not bid in our live auction for one of three exclusive prizes!  Email Jane at ccedc4h@gmail.com  with questions or special requests!

    Join us June 12th for a Flourishing Farmers

    information and enrollment session!

    The Flourishing Farmers 4-H program is an individualized and adaptive 4-H program that can accommodate youth with varying needs.

    The goal of this program is to help our 4-Hers grow through the development of citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills through experiential learning programs and a positive youth development approach.

    This event is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about our

    Flourishing Farmers 4-H program for special needs youth. 

    Bring your questions! 4-H staff will be happy to answer them.

    We ask that parents/guardians who are interested in enrollment bring a copy of their youth's IEP, as well as information about any other needs or accommodations we should be aware of!
