The Sevier County 4H program has cleaned out its closets and put together more than 100 activity kits for youths, with more to come.
The best part is the kits are free, said Janette Wagner, 4H program coordinator.
“They will be available for driveup or porch pickup in Richfield, Salina and Monroe starting May 1, and continuing throughout the month of May while supplies last,” Wagner said.
Each of these kits comes with all of the supplies needed along with instructions. However, children are welcome to come up with their own creative ideas on how to complete each kit’s activity. In addition, 4H is encouraging participants to enter their creations in the Sevier County Fair.
“There will be a display dedicated to items created from these kits, so the county can see some of the wonderful activities kids were involved with while staying home,” Wagner said.
Kids can earn ribbons and premiums for their entries at the fair.
“You have to be a member of 4H to enter items in the fair, but due to a generous donation from a county member the $10 annual enrollment fee will be waived for any child who enrolls in 4H during the month of May,” Wagner said.
To order a kit call (435) 896-0478 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Delivery of the kits began Friday.
In the South Sevier and North Sevier areas, porch pickup will be offered. The address will be emailed or texted after ordering.
In Richfield, there will be drive by pickup from the parking lot of the county building, 250 North Main. Those picking up are asked to text their name to (801) 602-7316 when arriving.
