Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS)

1268418395

In many ways, CEOS is 4-H for adults! The purpose of CEOS is to provide leadership development, continuing education, and service. CEOS members have lots of fun while learning and giving back back to their community through various service projects. In fact, two recent service projects, “Fidget Quilts” designed for Alzheimer’s patients and the “Little Free Libraries” were recently featured in the Herald Dispatch. Check them out by visiting Fidget Quilts and Little Free Libraries. To learn more about these two service projects or how you can join, contact Julie Tritz, 4-H Extension Agent at (304) 272-6839.
