Join Us for the 4-H Carnival
Purchase $1 tickets from 4-H members now to be entered in the drawing for cash prizes. Each ticket can also be redeemed for two booth tickets the day of the carnival.
Booth tickets will be sold the day of the carnival for 25¢ each.
The High Country Handiworkers will be hosting five booths including Toilet Paper Toss, Lollipop Pull, Lockbox, Iron Man Challenge, and Rubberband Guns. We will also be donating three baskets (Colorado Sports, Camping, Dog Care) for the live auction held at 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
All proceeds benefit 4-H programs in Larimer County.
Our club meeting in April will be on Monday, April 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the McKee Building. Please read the meeting minutes from March by clicking here. We will vote to approve the minutes at the next meeting.
We now have a signup genius for doing demonstrations on the Signups page. Due to our large numbers, some of you might want to do your demonstration at a project meeting, at school, in front of church youth group, at a Cloverbud meeting (check with Lacey), etc. It is also okay to buddy up with someone and do it together, especially if this helps you with confidence and getting in front of a group. Cindy also has an abundant supply of boards from members in shooting sports, sportfishing, and rabbit projects if this helps anyone. You are welcome to use them. We only have 4 meetings left before fair.
Books are in so can stop by Cindy’s office at Construction Supply House to pick them up, or they will be available at the meeting.
Be sure to grab the Clover Connections newsletter for April here.
Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming dates, or find them on the Calendar page of this website.
Those in Chicken, this workshop on Saturday will be a good one. Marilyn Lasich is excellent!
Cloverbuds it looks like the county workshop on April 29 will be on cake decorating, so it might be good practice. And mark your calendars for the 8th of May for the cake decorating contest.
Cindy would like to order the club shirts on Friday, March 24. This is also the last opportunity to change order if needed. Please click here to see the colors available.
Each member and leader may order a shirt, and the club covers the cost of one shirt through our fundraisers. We plan to order shirts every two years so think about that when ordering sizes. Hoodies and zipper hoodies are available in all colors as shown. Hoodies might run a tad bit smaller, but the t-shirts are true to size and are good quality and won’t shrink. The hoodies and zipper hoodies will cost about $20–24.
If your name is below, Cindy does not have an order for you. If you do not wish to get a shirt, please email so she doesn’t hold up the club’s order for you.
Tonight is Cloverbuds and Leathercraft. We meet at 6:30 at Construction Supply House. Cloverbuds are going to learn about bunnies, create a craft, play bingo, etc.
There is also a Poultry Workshop at 7:00 p.m. tonight at the Extension Office in Fort Collins. And the orientation for Shotgun will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Great Guns in Nunn.

A make-up archery orientation has been scheduled for Thursday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. in the LaPorte and Timnath rooms at the McKee building. If you did not attend either of the previous events (Safety Orientation on Tuesday, February 21, or Archery Workshop on Sunday, March 5), please plan on attending this make-up orientation so that you may begin participating in archery practice.
We are still in the need of help with the club booth on Saturday for the carnival. With 100 members filling 60 slots, it should not be hard to do. Click on Signups and then Carnival Booth. Cloverbuds are welcome to participate as well. And don’t forget, Cindy needs money for carnival tickets by Wednesday, March 15.
The High Country Handiworkers 4-H club was chartered in 1980 and is located in Larimer County, Colorado.
