BOZEMAN - Gallatin County's 4-H club is growing fast and in dire need of a permanent space that it has never before had.
By the end of the 4-H season, officials expect to have over 1,000 children enrolled in 4-H programs in Gallatin County. The hope is for a large facility that will accommodate everything from shooting to sewing.
"For some of our programs, we're moving boxes, sometimes truckloads, of equipment to set up for a two-hour class and then taking it down and packing it back up for the next week. And robotics is one of those and sewing. And it's just difficult to move," 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent Danica Jamison said.
The 4-H club is showing a free documentary that highlights the lives of six 4-H kids and features one from Gallatin County. It's Nov. 3 at the Procrastinator Theatre on the MSU campus and starts at 3 p.m.
