Lyon County 4-H Master Calendar 

Are you looking for opportunities to get involved in Lyon County 4-H or want to be sure you aren't missing an important deadline? One way to stay informed is to check out our Lyon County 4-H Master Calendar. While it's not a guarantee every important piece of information or deadline is on the calendar, it’s a great place to check regularly for upcoming deadlines and learning opportunities for all Lyon County youth. And while the Master Calendar is a great tool, properly re-enrolling or enrolling in 4-H via 4-H Online (https://v2.4honline.com/) also helps ensure that you receive communication from the Lyon County Extension Office. If you are not enrolled, you are missing out! Don’t forget to attend your monthly club meetings and county-wide project meetings. You will also learn more and be reminded of important deadlines by being active in your community club!
