New Millet Light Horse 4-H Club starting this fall

‘We look forward to a fun filled year of growth, new friends and best of all, a new 4-H family.’

A new Light Horse 4-H Club is coming to the area. Millet Light Horse 4-H club will operate club meetings out of the Porto Bello Community Hall the first Tuesday of every month and the club will ride three times a month at a local indoor arena which is yet to be determined.

The club will run October through June.

At the first official club meeting, club positions such as president will be decided.

Volunteer Tamara Aubry says that Millet was a great choice to settle their new 4-H club. “Not only is Millet local to the volunteers, it is a lovely, small knit community that I feel has a lot of heart. I hope that the town of Millet and Surrounding areas will be as excited about this opportunity for our local youth as we are,” Aubry says.

Aubry says that when creating the new club that, “I also want to develop a youth initiative within our community where our youth are part of a club that allows them to feel empowered, enriched and included. We feel this is where they will do their best work, and have the best opportunity to grow both personally and as a group.”

Former 4-H member and current volunteer for the Millet Light Horse 4-H club Mikayla Knull says, “we look forward to a fun filled year of growth, new friends and best of all, a new 4-H family.”

The club is hosting an information/ registration night on Sept.16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Porto Bello Community Hall. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the club volunteers ask that if you plan on attending to register with them through email at or on Facebook on the Millet 4-H Light Horse page.
