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.
Achievement Night is this Friday, November 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m. I hope you all plan on attending. There are members in our club who will be receiving awards so it would be great to show support to them. I also know there will be dessert. It starts with a slideshow, and there are pictures of several club members included. Join us in the exhibit hall at the McKee Building.
Our community service Turning Pens for the Troops will be on Sunday, November 4 at Woodcraft. Members including Cloverbuds and any new members are encouraged to come and turn a wood block into a beautiful pen to send to our service men and women. There is plenty of instruction available so no experience is necessary. Please sign up on the club website under Signups. If there is a time filled up and that is what works for you, email Cindy and we can probably work you in. We need to fill all the time slots as there are over 100 pens to create.
The Foods Project meeting for November will be held next Monday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the McKee building. Anyone interested in a foods project, please attend.
Enrollment is open! Please get signed up at any time. Remember, we have time to add or drop projects after signup if need be. Go to 4honline to complete signup. If you are a returning member, use your established username and password. If you are new, please create a username and password and remember it—you will use it throughout your 4-H career.
