Good Morning Everyone,
- Fair Paper is on its way!!! I will soon also have the e-newspaper link to share with families!!! I will let families know when we have paper copies in hand.
- Beef Weigh-in; Feb 6th, 2022 @ 9:00 am. This will be dependent on weather!!
- Ownership deadline for beef is the weigh-in date. If you plan to show breeding beef, I need to know the tag number, breed and age of your breeding project. The heifers do not need to come to weigh-in unless you would like a weight on them.
- Project Assistance Grants: Please see the attached sheets with information about the project assistance grants. Applications are due to the Extension Office by Feb 14h.
- 4-H Enrollment, please go to v2.4honline.com to re-enroll or sign up as a new member. If you have changed your email from last year, please let me know BEFORE re-enrolling, so I can change it for you first. This way we avoid creating duplicates. If you have any questions on enrollment, please reach out to me and I will help you.
- For new members the enrollment fee is $22.00. You must be an “Active” (this means enrolled and paid) 4-H member to participate in 4-H activities. Please sign up and come pay at the Extension office soon. Returning members: Fee have increased to $32.00 now. Please enroll ASAP.
