(Aitkin, MN) — In the previous year that wiped out almost all 4-H and agricultural programs for Aitkin County, representatives from University of Minnesota Extension spoke to the Aitkin County Board of Commissioners on what to expect for 2021 at the Board meeting on February 9th.

Susanne Hinrichs of U-of-M Extension and 4-H Youth Development Extension Educator Shawn Pagnucci were on hand to conduct the informational session, as Hinrichs first highlighted an initiative of tree growth in the region.

Recently designated as Aitkin County’s 4-H Representative, Shawn Pagnucci informed the Board on changes to annual fundraisers for the Youth programs.

Pagnucci also introduced another project and creative outlet for the 4-H youth.
