MILFORD - The first regular Pike County Commissioners’ meeting for 2018, held January 3rd was brief, but contained information on winter events hosted by 4-H at Penn State Extension.

Angie Smith, who coordinates 4-H, discussed “Winter is for the Birds” planned Saturday, January 13, at Tractor Supply Company, 475 Routes 6 & 209, outside Milford. Held from 2 to 4:30 p.m., the event will feature a live animal demonstration provided by the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and will be followed by a winter bird feeder craft series provided by the Pike County Master Gardeners. This event is for children ages 7-18.

Admission is free for 4-H members and only $5 per child for non-members. Registration is required and attendance is limited to 50 children. For more information and registration instructions please contact the county 4-H office at 570-296-3400 or email pike4-H@psu.edu.

“If your New Year’s resolution was to make a difference in your community,” Smith said, you are welcome to attend one of two sessions to learn how to become a 4-H volunteer. Sessions are at 1 and 6 p.m., at the Pike County Extension Office in Milford.

4-H is continuing to take donations throughout the year for the Pike County Humane Society.
