“You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future.” Just like the quote suggests, the past is the past and it can’t be changed. It does not suggest, which it should, that the past is something to be learned from. The past is simply a tool that helps you improve, even if you didn’t have any mistakes.
December is a busy month for all of us: wrapping presents, sending cards and even listening to holiday music. For the State Council it is even a busier month with preparations for the PA Farm Show and State Leadership Conference. I hope everyone that is reading has sent in their application to attend SLC. It will be a roaring good time filled with many experiences that are not worth missing. Get ready to be picture perfect in a photo booth that will join us all weekend.
In the upcoming months our team will busy attending Farm Show, planning and attending SLC, while creating a memorable State Achievement Days. If you are visiting the Farm Show Saturday be sure to tune in at the opening ceremonies where you can spot us. If you are not up there for Saturday’s events you can stop by the 4-H booths in the Family Living building. This year there will also be a 4-H food stand selling pork BBQ.
Hope you all have a wonderful new year celebrating 4-H’s 100th anniversary!! A thought to ponder: “Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count.”
Happy New Year!
State Council Secretary
