2022 Calendar

Save the date: Tolland County 4-H Fairboard Meetings are the second Wednesday of every month at 6:45 pm (held at the Tolland County Extension Center), except for July when there are two meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays. Find the 2021-2022 fairboard meeting calendar here.

We ask that clubs do not schedule their meetings on the second Wednesday of the month to allow for 4-H members and volunteer to join Fairboard. If your club does not have a member on Fairboard please consider sending someone from your club to attend Fairboard meetings and report back to your club.
