I cannot believe that Thanksgiving has already come and gone! When I was sitting at the dinner table on Thanksgiving day, I started to think back to just how crazy and eventful this year has been. Not only did I recollect and relish past events, I realized that I have a lot for which I should be thankful. My family, friends, pets, and of course, 4-H, all crossed my mind. I do not know where I would be without all the help and support offered by such influential and important people in my life. So I would like to take this time to thank you all.
When thanking people, I would be remiss if I forgot to mention our troops. My grandfather served in World War II and hearing about his experiences overseas has given me a different perspective on things. It has really made me appreciate what our troops are doing for us. So thank you all who serve our great country!
On a side note, PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO SIGN UP for the 2013 Pennsylvania 4-H State Leadership Conference! It is going to be a blast with candy galore! My team and I cannot express our excitement for this event and our eagerness to meet many of you there!
2012/2013 Pennsylvania 4-H State Council President
