4-H Canada Program


4-H Section CLASS 12

The primary purpose of the 4-H program is the personal development of youth in rural Ontario.

The program is co-ordinated through the Ontario 4-H Council and the Peel 4-H Association. However, the goals of the 4-H program are only achieved through the dedicated efforts of local volunteer leaders. The Peel 4-H Program wishes to thank the Albion & Bolton Agricultural Society for sponsoring the Bolton Junior Dairy Calf Club, Bolton Senior Dairy Calf Club, and Peel Lifeskills Clubs, who hold their achievement program and display exhibits at the Fair.
