No off-season for 4-Hers
Some people might think this time of year is a little slower-paced for the 4-H program. After all, the 4-H clubs are up and running, and the fairs don’t start until July. However, we do have plenty of things to work on during the winter months.
It’s never too early to start working on your 4-H projects, and 4-H members who show livestock are already hard at work caring for their project animals. Earlier this month, 4-Hers who plan to show steers got some practice working with their animals as they brought them to the weigh-in. We had a good turnout and look forward to seeing the 4-Hers and their animals at the fair. At the Extension office, we are working on updating the fair book with new information for this year’s fair.
Four-H families had the opportunity to participate in some fun events this month as well. With the help of 4-H Federation, we held an awards program to recognize our volunteers and 4-Hers for their achievements, and took a trip to Snowstar Winter Sports Park to go snow tubing (a multi-county event). The fun doesn’t end there – our next multi-county event will be curling at the Waltham Curling Club in March.
