The 24th Annual Paul & Jean Hoshiko 4-H Foundation Golf Tournament is this Friday, June 7 in Windsor at the Pelican Lakes Golf Club.
There are many opportunities to volunteer and serve community service. The morning shift starts at 6:45 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. when lunch is provided. The afternoon shift starts at 11:30 a.m. with lunch and goes until 5:00 p.m.
There are opportunities to sell truck raffle tickets that count for our club, work at the golf holes with games, help draw door prizes, and much more. Several of our club members have participated in the past.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Cindy and let her know whether you’re available in the morning, afternoon, or all day.
Thanks for your consideration, and sorry for the short notice.
The Big Thompson Bowhunters group is holding their annual work day at Lon Hagler Range this Saturday, May 4 beginning at 8:00 a.m.
Larimer Country 4-H participants have assisted with the work day in exchange for being allowed to shoot at the range for Tuesday evening practices during the summer.
This is a great opportunity to serve your community service for record books, be helpful to the archery community, and pay back for the use of the range. Hopefully you can lend a few hours or more.
Following is the information from the Big Thompson Bowhunters newsletter about the Work Day:
“Range Day this year will be Saturday, May 4th, when we rebuild all the backstops and do general maintenance at the Lon Hagler range. We begin at 8 a.m., split up into two groups, start at each end of the course, and work towards the middle. Dennis has all the supplies ready with even a couple of new banders because we had two that would have cost more to fix than to buy new. We break around noon for lunch which is provided by BTB and then finish up about an hour later. The range is closed to the public until we finish, so we usually try to have things wrapped up by 3 p.m. because it seems there are always people waiting to shoot. The more help we have, the faster and easier it goes, so if you have some time on the first Saturday in May, please come on out and help. Also, we will have one Bobcat to help lift the top bales, but a second one so each crew is covered would be great. Please contact Dennis if you have a Bobcat available for even a few hours on May 5th. We would really appreciate it!”
Our club completed a community service project at the December meeting: wrapping presents for Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County. We hope the kids have an amazing, magical time at their Christmas party this weekend!
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. Leaders, please follow the instructions to complete the refresher course and renew your enrollment as well.
Also, Outdoor Skills and Western Heritage are starting their meetings. If you have any questions please contact Jim Easthouse at 970-217-5833, or Jackie Easthouse at 303-548-6433 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outdoor Skills meets this Thursday, November 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Estes Park Room at the McKee building. Any members 4-H age 8 and up who are interested, please come see what we do. We have a bunch of new wildlife identification items!
Western Heritage meets on Monday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Berthoud Room at the McKee building. Any members 4-H age 9 and up with prior 4-H shooting sports fire line experience (excluding Archery) who are interested in the Western Heritage project, please join us.
Volunteer for this community service opportunity to create writing pens for the troops in honor of Veterans Day. No experience is necessary and High Country Handiworkers club members and Cloverbuds are welcome to participate.
Join us on Sunday, November 4. We have two slots for each time between 10:00 am.–3:40 p.m. in 20-minute increments at Woodcraft. Visit the Signups page to volunteer for a time slot!
Please contact Cindy with any questions.
The High Country Handiworkers 4-H club was chartered in 1980 and is located in Larimer County, Colorado.
