As we go through the busy time of summer, it is important to think about who has helped or impacted our experiences in 4-H. It is never too early too early for Cloverbuds to learn how to write thank you notes.
As a Cloverbud volunteer, it might be helpful to ask some of the following questions to our Cloverbuds:
- How did they help you?
- Did you receive a gift/award? Who was that from?
- Were they a good friend/neighbor/mentor?
It is important for Cloverbuds to realize that you should not just write a thank you note when you receive an item. There are many other situations and times when a thank you note is needed to acknowledge help or assistance.
Encourage the Cloverbud youth to think about volunteers in their club, camp counselor, Senior Fairboard member who helps put on fair, club officer, etc.
