Christian County 4-H will team up with the County Board to provide a fun filled afternoon. The day will begin with a behind the scenes tour of the Courthouse.  Attendees will have an opportunity to meet some of the countywide officers to discuss what their role and responsibilities are within county government.  Then a working dinner will be provided, which will allow attendees to have a better understanding of how local government works within Christian County and the chance to get to know their board members.  Following dinner, participants will interact with board members during the August Executive Committee Meeting.
