Hey PA 4-H!
October has been a hectic month for me between classes and going to Penn State football games (and then that snow! It's October!), but I have also been getting to know 4-H members who live in my new home- Centre County.
During National 4-H Week (October 4-10), Christy and I along with members of the Centre County Teen Council, participated in National Youth Science Day in the Food Lab at Penn State University. We completed the Biofuel Blast experiment using various materials such as yeast and corn syrup to inflate a balloon. I also wrote a press release about National 4-H Week.
On October 18, I did my 8th club visit with the Centre County Teen Council, which was held at the Home Delivery restaurant in State College. It was nice to see people who I knew from early on in my 4-H years but lost contact with.
October 31 was our second Face to Face business meeting. Four members were present and in costume to liven up the meeting! We were excited to have a visit from our former Council advisor Dr. Jackie Bruce who was visiting from North Carolina! We also listened to Eric McGinnis talk about fundraising and the Keystone Society. Our State Program Leader, Christy Bartley, also stopped by to have lunch and meet with us. We continued to make plans for SLC about Opening Ceremonies and adjusting to the new changes that will be made for Closing Ceremonies. Our next big event will be the Governor's Dinner at Farm Show.
Registration is now open for SLC so be sure to get yours in and continue to collect soda tabs!
COUNTDOWN TO SLC: 90 days!
