May Spotlight: Stump Corner 4-H club


Stump Corner 4-H Club is based in Townsend, Delaware. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month, September through June, at the Immanuel United Methodist Church in Townsend. Our members are mostly from the Middletown, Odessa, Townsend, and Smyrna area, but members are welcome from across the state! We are a general 4-H Club, so our members are involved in diverse project areas. We have members who work on projects in Clothing & Textiles, Foods & Nutrition, Hiking, Wildlife, Forestry, Technology/Computer Science, Sheep, Dairy, and Swine. We are always open to other interests! 

We currently have members from ages 5 through 17 and always welcome new members. During our meetings, we have completed science projects, made cards for the local nursing home, programmed robots, and created edible food art. 

Our members participate in the Demonstration contest, Favorite Foods, Clothing & Textiles Showcase, Jr Council, Interstate Exchange, State Camps, and Judging contests and serve as camp counselors. 

Community service opportunities include a yearly park cleanup, serving meals at Our Daily Bread in Middletown, and playing games with the residents of Broad Meadow nursing home in Middletown. 

Our club year starts right after Labor Day. Late September brings the Townsend Town Parade and Fair for which our club members put together a float and provide a petting zoo at the town fair for the town residents. We hold a hayride in November at one of our member’s farm. In December, we have our annual family potluck dinner and craft night. April brings Ag Day, where we participate with an educational booth. And we close out the year in June with a family picnic and litter cleanup at our local park. 

We are always welcoming new members!
