Old Business

  • Plan of Communication
  • Goals and Priorities – Teen leaders did an activity where they wrote what the best form of 4-H would look like on a sticky note. Then they sorted the sticky notes into groups. They agreed that they want the youth to have a voice, everyone to be nice, and that they want more activities. Discussed theses things and created an activities committee that Josie, Olivia, McKenzie, Chloe, Becky, Brooke, Isabelle, Hannah, and Natalya are going to participate in.
