MOUNT VERNON — Knox County 4-H clubs will have a new meeting place in 2019, thanks to efforts to build a 4,600-square feet 4-H Youth Center on land adjacent to the Knox County Fairgrounds and Natural Resources Area.

Details of the center were outlined for the Knox County Kiwanis Club Monday by Mark Bennett, a member of the Knox County 4-H Planning Committee, and Larry Hall and Andrea Rees, Knox County OSU Extension 4-H Educators.

Hall told the luncheon attendees that 4-H is all about children learning by doing.
