“In this time of uncertainty, we have opened the Kansas 4-H Discovery Days registration with the understanding that at any point we may need to cancel this event. We will close registration and post information if and when that may be deemed necessary. If we cancel the event, refunds will be processed. Thank you for understanding.”
