I hope all of you are enjoying this nice, warm weather and the end of the school year! Congratulations Class of 2009!
On May 11, I attended the Snyder County 4-H Foundation meeting as a Teen Representative. During the meeting we discussed county funding, our region’s 4-H camp, and the county 4-H Scholarship. Both myself and a friend of mine received the two scholarships. Members of Foundation commented that it’s great that both recipients will be attending Penn State University, the land-grant university that runs Cooperative Extension and 4-H.
My club, Backyard Bunnies, held a meeting on May 14. I talked about a service project I just learned about called 4-H Million Trees. 4-H clubs around the world are asked to plant trees with a goal of planting one million. We also planned a day to count all the soda tabs that we’ve collected so far within our club.
During our Council conference call, we discussed our plan for State Days in greater detail and preparing our opening ceremonies during our June meeting. We hope to see you all there July 28-30! We are also looking at our trip to New Mexico closer and planning the workshops that we will present to the members there. In addition to that, we’ve been warned that July is New Mexico’s rainy season, and it’s nothing like PA’s! Time to buy some rain boots!
I have also been talking with leaders to plan club visits.
Until next time!
