Four-H, originally uploaded by William 74.

You used to see these 4-H Club signs more frequently, usually at county lines and sometimes on the outskirts of town, near the signs from the local Rotarians welcoming travelers. They're pretty distinctive, with the club's four leaf clover logo and white and green livery. I don't come across them very often anymore, and I don't even know if they're being made anymore. This one's in rural Illinois, and has a twin on the other side of the county.

4-H clubs have a sort of quaint reputation, mainly because of the organization's rural beginnings, but the 4-H clubs of today have extensive programs dealing in citizenship, science and technology, and healthy living.
