The club in my area is horrendous. We used to be a part of it about 5 years ago, but ALL they did the whole meeting was talk about the next shows. there weren't ANY workshops and the people taught us nothing. Also, they had smoking at a 4-H event and that is forbidden.
But then we talked to this one lady who was a leader of another 4-H group and it was WONDERFUL. Everything you could ask for and more. Unfortunately, it is too far for us to drive to it each time.
If you can find a really nice group, then rejoin. If you can't, I wouldn't rejoin. Unless you just really wanted to be in 4-H to go to the shows. I'm not sure if you can actually just go to the shows and not the meetings?
