The Neshoba County 4-H Clover Bud program is open to children ages 5-7. With the exception of only a very few contest areas at the county level this program is a non-competitive stage that prepares the child for contest areas when they turn eight years old.

Children enrolled in the Clover Buds receive three 4-H newsletters in the year just for them. They also meet each month with club advisor Teresa Anderson on the same day we hold our County 4-H Council meetings.

Clover Bud children are to arrive for refreshments at 3:30 p.m. after school on most monthís second Wednesday. There is an exception or two such as in the month of March when their meeting will be held the third Wednesday of March on March 19. They will enjoy refreshments with the County 4-H Council members and then start their meeting at 4:00 p.m. in the Neshoba Coliseum.

The 2014 schedule is as follow: January and What is 4-H; February and Head, Who am I; March and Head, Personal Care; April and Hands, Planting Flowers; May and Heart, Where You Live; June and No class (Home activity); July and Heart, Our Flag; August and Hands, Doing Your Part; September and Health, Your Environment; October and Health, Home Hazards; November and Heart, Are You Different?; December and Christmas Party.
