As part of the Engaging Youth, Serving Communities initiative we had over 41 4-H youth working the event, and 12 adult volunteer leaders! Additionally, we served over 166 community youth and adults who came to the event, and 60 of them were first time attendees to the Seaford Family Night on October 4, 2013!
Our partners were the Sussex Health Promotion Coalition and the Boys and Girls Club. The goal of the evening was to share the wonders of 4-H and allow the community to sample just a few of our Healthy Living Initiatives.
Guests experienced our beautiful fall decorations, a “slow bike race”, line dancing, hula hoop contests, IM40 Asset Development, Health Rocks modules, games, tin punch craft, cup cakes (yum!), corn toss, music, pizza and swimming. With the Sussex 4H leaders and youth, guests knew they were in for a fun and well executed event! It was a great evening for our youth and the community. What a fun way to show others the wonders of 4-H. And, 95% of those who filled out surveys told us that they learned something new about living healthy as a result of the event.
