As of Friday, March 30th, 4-H Ontario has implemented a mandatory suspension of all in-person 4-H activities in Ontario.  (Please see their full statement below.)

This means all face-to-face meetings and activities are suspended until the state of emergency in Ontario is lifted.  South Simcoe 4-H Association has leaders who have committed to running most of the clubs virtually for now (i.e., through teleconferences, ZOOM, etc.) Look for these meetings times on the Club page.

In an effort to keep members engaged, 4-H Ontario has released an online Explore 4-H Project.  Learn more about the Online Explore 4-H Project on our website here: https://4-hontario.ca/uploads/userfiles/files/4-h%20ontario%20online%20explore%204h%20project%20final.pdf

A Cloverbud At Home Experience was created and released so that all of our 4-H Participants can have a meaningful 4-H experience in this time. You can find the information at this link: https://www.4-hontario.ca/uploads/userfiles/files/cloverbud%20at%20home%20experience_final(1).pdf

We are in unprecedented times and all the uncertainty can take its toll on everyone.  Together, we will get through this.
