Mecklenburg 4-H is excited to announce that we have partnered with MGR Youth Empowerment to offer the following workshops in addition to our 2014 Summer Fun schedule. We hope you will join us this summer to SHARE THE FUN in our abundance of exciting programs!

4H share the fun 

All events listed to take place at the Armory will be located at:
1418 Armory Drive, Charlotte, NC 28204.

Registration will continue throughout the summer until workshops are filled.
Classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Summer Shine Marketing Flyer & Workshop List 2014

Please complete both the:
4-H Youth Enrollment Form4-H Medical Release  for each child you are registering.
These two forms only need to be completed ONCE per calendar year.  If you have already submitted as part of another summer event or as a club and/or independent member for 2014 you do not have to resubmit the forms, just simply complete the online registration and submit payment.  When working with our partner organization it was designed so that we would have to take a separate registration from our summer fun schedule which has previously been published.  For those who wish to check into those workshops as well please visit: http://mecklenburg.ces.ncsu.edu/2014/04/summerfun2014/.
