4-H ACTIVITY UPDATE
While we are still in Phase 1 of the Governor’s plan, we are still discouraging groups of more than 10 people from gathering, and discouraging groups of less than 10 if the 6 ft. distance can’t be maintained. We have had to cancel 4-H Camp at Rotary, and our Tween Camp for this summer, due to these guidelines. However, at this time, we are Still Planning for the JBC Fair! Even if it isn’t just like usual, we will have fair in some form or fashion. So, please enter your projects as you would on any other year, and we will keep you all updated with any changes, or modifications to the process if and when they happen. I hope everyone is having a good spring, and I truly look forward to seeing all of you when that becomes an option! In the mean-time, I am still here to help, answer questions, and hear concerns or ideas from you! Please don’t hesitate to call if you need something.
Have a great May!

STATE AMBASSADOR OFFICE
The Montana 4-H State Ambassador program provides opportunities for youth to represent
4-H through leadership and service at the state level. State Ambassadors Officers
are a select team of Montana 4-H Ambassadors that have
demonstrated leadership in their county 4-H programs, and who are interested in developing and refining skills to teach other 4-H youth about leadership, promotion and service. Applications are due postmarked to the 4-H Center by June 15, 2020. The ambassador officer selection process takes place during pre-congress events.
