Rock Bridge 4-H Club was established in 1958 and our current club leaders are Jill Swearingen, Kerissa Kirk, Susan Weiner (Clover Kids), Janet Snow (Livestock), and Valerie Freed (Shooting Sports). We are an active club with more than 90 members from 66 different families.

We offer two levels of membership: Club members and Clover Kids. Our 4-H year runs September through August, and club members must be between the ages of 8 and 18 by the first of January of the current 4-H year. Clover Kids must be between the ages of 5 and 7 as of the first of January of the current 4-H year. To learn more about what our club offers, click on the links at the left.

Rock Bridge 4-H club meets on the second Thursday of each month. During the school year (Sept - May) we meet at Gentry Middle School, located at 4200 Bethel Street in Columbia, MO. During the summer, we meet at alternate locations. Clover Kids meet from 6:00 to 7:00 PM in the Cafetorium. Our regular club meetings generally begin at 7:00PM and last approximately one and a half hours in the cafetorium. Each meeting is run by the Executive Committee made up of our 4-H members, with leader guidance. We use Robert's Rules of Order to discuss our regular business and then, usually, we have a program that is educational and/or entertaining.

We are a family-oriented, service-minded club. We participate in many community service projects and involve the whole family in our activities. We teach leadership and problem-solving skills. Our members learn respect for themselves and respect for others. Our members take pride in their accomplishments, both individually and as members of our team. Most of our members also gain public speaking skills as a result of their 4-H experiences.

4-H offers many opportunities for achievement awards, trips, camps, and scholarships. We hope that you enjoy our site and that you might consider joining our club.  There is a 4-H Family "Welcome Packet" posted on our "Announcements" page with loads of information on what it means to be a 4-H family.
