Thousands of Kansas 4-H members will put their hands to larger service – part of the 4-H pledge – the weekend of October 8th and 9th by participating in 48 Hours of 4-H. The goal is to challenge 4-H members in every Extension unit to be service-minded leaders and to make an impact in Kansas and their community. Kansas 4-H Regional Specialist for Central Kansas, Beth Hinshaw, says this weekend of service allows 4-H youth to work with their friends, 4-H alumni, parents, volunteers, community partners and organizations to show what 4-H does, how it serves others and how much fun it is when we all work together.

Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
