Poultry Club to form in Granville County

Jun. 24, 2014 @ 11:40 AM

Plans are in the works to form a new 4-H Poultry Club in Granville County.

An interest meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m. July 16 at the Granville County Extension Office for youth between the ages of eight and 18 years old who want to raise, show or just learn more about chickens.

Bette Laursen, a retired teacher and cattle producer, has volunteered to be the club leader.

The primary resource person will be Jessica Harris, Granville County 4-H agent. She will provide help with showing chickens.

Club members are not required to have chickens.

For more information, contact Laursen at gooseriver@embarqmail.com or (919) 693-6222, or contact Harris at (919) 603-1350 or jessica_harris@ncsu.edu.
