New 4-H Year Enrollment Payment Updated

When enrolling 4-H members in 4HOnline, the final payment due says that it is $15 dollars. This is incorrect and does not show the complete enrollment fee of $50 for regular 4-H Members or $40 for Cloverbuds for the 4-H year. The
4-H Leader fee is still $5.

For this year we will be accepting club checks only. If you are in a club that does not have a bank account, we will accept family checks.

Families will need to submit their payment to their designated club leader (via whatever method is decided between them - cash, check, Venmo, whatever works for them) and the club leader will need to submit a club check to the Extension Office.
