Head, heart, hands and health are all incorporated in the 4-H movement started in the United States in the late 1800’s, and in Manitoba in 1913. As a movement for young people it spread quickly in rural communities before appearing in Nova Scotia under the name “Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs” in 1922. In Kings County the first recorded club was a Holstein calf club in Grand Pre founded in 1927-28. There is a saying in the 4-H Movement that it is more than just “Cows & Cooking”. This exhibit will not only celebrate the history of the 4-H movement in Kings County but it will also explore what it means to be part of the 4-H movement today. The exhibit runs until August 31st.
