1-9-17 4-H Monday Memo

Good Morning All,

January Council meeting will be January 10th @ 6:30 pm.

We need to have Families start signing up to clean the SCD Building. Please call the Extension Office to schedule a time.

4-H Leadership Development Conference January 28-30, 2017 and 4-H Day at the State Capitol is January 30 in Denver.  Senior 4-H members 14-18 by December 31, 2016 are eligible to attend this great leadership conference. Because there are also basketball games in Caprock on Saturday January 28th, players would need to either miss a game or have parents drive you to Denver after the games.  In the past, 4-H Council has covered the cost for 6-7 members to attend but we will need to review this based on the number interested in attending.  If you think you can manage to be a delegate, please let Deb know as soon as possible because the deadline is in early January!
