November was full of exciting 4-H events. The highlight of this month was being able to attend National 4-H Congress. While on the visit to Atlanta, Georgia I participated in different workshops and tours in the Atlanta area. There were 49 Pennsylvania delegates that traveled with me. Not only did I meet 4-H members from around the nation but I also got even closer to 4-H members from Pennsylvania. This chance is once in a life time opportunity, that I had the pleasure to participate in. Next year, I encourage all members to apply for a spot in the 2012 delegation.
I also went into a local school's classroom and taught the class about this year's National Science Day. The students participated in the activities tied in with the day. They loved the hands on experience to create their own wind turbine.
As December comes, holiday cheer fills the air. This season enjoy the holiday with your family. Family helps to make your 4-H career so much better. On that note, here is something to think about: "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind."
