UMaine Extension 4-H is open to all Maine youth ages 5-18. Participation can include animal science projects involving dairy, goats, horses, poultry and sheep. Other options include community clubs, special interest (SPIN) clubs, 4-H camps, STEM programs and engaging youth in leadership and citizenship opportunities.

Auction items can be previewed at noon at the Grange the day of the auction. Freedom Grange will provide lunch items for purchase.
