GEORGETOWN – The Kentucky 4-H Homecoming, the annual signature event for the Kentucky 4-H Foundation, will be held on Saturday, April 20, at 6 p.m. at The Hilton Garden Inn, in Georgetown.

This annual event reconnects former 4-H’ers with each other 4-H alumni as well as with friends, volunteers, and supporters of Kentucky 4-H.

“The first two 4-H Homecomings were huge successes and we expect this year’s event to be even more successful,” said Keith L. Rogers, executive director of the Kentucky 4-H Foundation.

“Our Homecoming is for those who hold 4-H near and dear to their heart, want to reconnect with old friends, want to make new friends, and want to support 4-H and the youngsters who participate in it. This is your chance to not only reconnect with friends but also to help assure a bright future for Kentucky 4-H.”

The evening will include a reception, dinner, silent auction, slideshow of historic photos, and a homecoming program. The dress for 2013 Homecoming is casual and a cash bar will be available. Tickets are $40 per person and RSVPs should be made by April 12. New to this year’s Homecoming is an optional outing at Keeneland on Sunday, April 21; tickets for the Keeneland

event are $10 per person when ordered by April 1. To register for both events or for more information about them, go to the 4-H Foundation website at www.kentucky4hfoundation.org.

The Hilton Garden Inn is providing a reduced room rate of $89 a night (plus tax), which includes breakfast, for the entire weekend. This room rate is good only until April 8. To make room reservations, you may contact the hotel at 502-863-0099 and tell them you are with the Kentucky 4-H Foundation or provide the group code: “4H2”. You can also reserve a room at the Hilton Garden Inn Georgetown website.
