4-H ACTIVITY UPDATE
Howdy, and Happy ALMOST SUMMER!
The most exciting thing so far this month, is we’re now in Phase 2. We’ve been working hard to work on our fair plan, and have a draft being reviewed by the Central MT Health District. It looks like if we’re in Phase 2 or 3, we should be able to pull our fair together with minimal modifications. If we end up back in Phase 1 we’ll have to make a few more adjustments, but we will be able to hold the event. Please continue to follow the CDC and State of MT guidelines, and don’t put those record books off ‘til the last minute! If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to visit, please call.
Have a great June!
