Some Los Alamos County 4-H members celebrated 4-H Week by painting the ‘Rock’ in White Rock Wednesday morning. Los Alamos County has three 4-H and almost 50 current members in kindergarten through 12th grade.

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has proclaimed Oct. 1-7 as National 4-H Week. 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the United States, with a network of 500,000 volunteers and 3,500 4-H professionals that provides caring and supportive mentoring to 6 million 4-H’ers. For 120 years 4-H has been working within communities across the nation to “Make the Best Better”.
