Union County 4-H Horse Club Seeks Youth Members

Union County, NJ – Union County has a thriving 4-H program with club for every interest from photography and Lego to Colonial living, and there is even a club for horse lovers, too. Right now the Union County 4-H Horse Club is seeking boys and girls in grades 5 through 12 to join in fun activities while learning about their favorite subject.

The club is run by Lora Cherepy of Union and Kathy Ann Krajcik of Mountainside. Lora holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Science. Kathy Ann is a long time horse enthusiast and owner. These two volunteers will share their knowledge of horses with club members and prepare them to participate in the annual New Jersey State 4-H Horse Bowl in March.

All 4-H members practice teamwork, organization, communication and many other important skills while exploring a passion in their lives.

The Horse Club meets on the first and third Sunday of each month at the County services building in Westfield from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. during the school year. There is no fee, but pre-registration is required. For more information call 908-654-9854, or email 4-H secretary Ellen DiIorio at
