Who would have thought snow would be on the ground before Halloween? With snow and ice comes change: change in the weather and change in what we wear. "The key to change...is to let go of fear." As 4-H members we must let go of the fear we may have so we can grow as a club and as individuals. Change at first is out of the normal, but as we let go we experience new things that help us grow.
During October I had the opportunity to help with National Science Day. As a council member I was a group leader with 3 younger 4-H members in my group. During the event we built 2 wind turbines and measured which one was the fastest. I also presented to my 4-H club on activities they can get involved in through the state.
As a council we had our second conference call. We are getting wild for leadership as SLC packets were distributed to county 4-H educators. We are working hard to make this year’s SLC an amazing safari adventure. We look forward for 4-H members to join us through our jungle experience in late January.
Here is something to think about: "When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened." Which one are you?
