Contact the Extension Office to sign up for Sewing Day Camp.
April 24 is the date scheduled at the Senior Citizen Center Glasgow. Begins at 1:00 p.m.
This county-wide event is open to all enrolled 4-H members whether in a sewing project or not.
Hosts: Western Valley and Four-Leaf Clover 4-H Clubs.
Lifeskills Day set for May 1st - entry forms due by April 25.
Have you given your demonstration or talk at your club meeting yet?
Join the fun! Presenting a demonstration or talk gives you the chance to share what you have learned. In a demonstration you should both show and tell how to do something related to one of your 4-H projects. Be sure it is a teaching moment!
Everyday you listen to others and they listen to you. You share ideas with your parents or friends trying to be as clear as possible so they understand what you mean. That is what demonstrations and illustrated talks are all about - learning to organize and present ideas so that others will understand you.
When you show others how to plant a flower or how to make a rocket, you are demonstrating. You may use posters, pictures and charts to help explain your idea. Learning how to plan and give a demonstration will help you at school, express your ideas to other people, and in the future, get a job.
Are you ready to complete your first fair entry for 2022?
LIFE SKILLS DAY is just that event
This event will be held May 1 - hosted by Lucky Clover 4-H Club at the Nashua School.

Horse Assessment Dates - two options - attend either May 18 or 28
Horse assessments are mandatory to attend. There will be two opportunities to attend assessments, attend either May 18 (Wednesday) and May 28 (Saturday). An assessment is a way to evaluate the skills of a horse and rider. The goal of assessments is to help guide 4-H members in growing and progressing on their horsemanship skills. An assessment does NOT compare skills against other members, but is an assessment of an individual rider's skills. There will be an assessment at the end of the project (most likely at the show) to be able to reflect on their individual progress over the year. Jenn Young and Randi Klind, Horse Superintendents.
Horse ID Forms - due by June 1
By June 1 each year a form needs to be completed for each horse you are using in your horse projects. Available on ZSuite shared files.
Applications were sent out to those members graduating this spring. The deadline to return the application is May 17th.
This scholarship was started in 1988. Since the inception 163 members have been awarded a total of $59,850
