Cindy is reconciling the tickets sold to the funds received. Does anyone remember paper-clipping two sets of 5 tickets that had difference names and different phone numbers? Are these groups of 5 for $20, or are they 5 individual tickets? If you remember, please let Cindy know.
Also, our club will be turning in the tickets this week. If you or a friend would like to make a last-minute purchase, contact Cindy.
Our club picnic will be on September 11 at 6:00 p.m. at Fairgrounds Park in Loveland. The club will furnish the main course, paper goods, and the drink. Please bring a side and/or dessert, for at least 10 people if possible.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the truck raffle ticket sales at the fair.
It was another fantastic year for the High Country Handiworkers! We had many members with great ribbons!
4-H members are encouraged to enter the County Animal Record Book Contest to have their books evaluated. Champion and Reserve Champion awards will be given to the top Junior, Intermediate, and Senior books in each division. This contest is for members who want their Beef, Dairy Cattle, Dog, Cat, Goat, Horse, Alpaca/Llama, Poultry, Rabbit, Sheep, and Swine record books evaluated on the county level.
Each species will be judged separately. If you put all of your species in one e-fecord book, you must make a separate copy of your book for each contest you wish to enter; otherwise, the book will only be judged in one of the specie categories. For the purposes of using the Junior Livestock Sale price in your record book calculations, youth should use the price determined on the night of the sale and should not wait for the final amount included in the Junior Livestock Sale Committee letter (including add-ons and commission adjustments). This letter typically is not received until mid-September.
4-H club members do not have to compete in this contest to complete their 4-H year or project work, but must have their book(s) reviewed by their club or project leader for completion. To enter the contest, give your record books to your club leader by September 11.
Cindy will take the record books to Fort Collins, so please get them to her before September 11, or on September 11 at our club picnic. Our club expectation is for all in livestock participants to enter the contest. If you need help in any way, please ask.
The High Country Handiworkers 4-H club was chartered in 1980 and is located in Larimer County, Colorado.
