As a reminder, this form is REQUIRED for each MARKET/LACTATING animal. In addition, a few other species require it. If your animal will be tagged at weigh-in (poultry), please complete this after you receive your tag numbers.

Assistance Needed: Pictures Please

We need some help.

We will be making a calendar for all families for 2022.  We want to include pictures of a variety of 4-H events.  Please upload pictures below.  We would like pictures of camp, fair, pre-fair judging, weigh-ins/tag-ins, clinics, club meetings, community service events, recreation events, club group pictures, etc.  We will try to use as many as we can in this calendar.

We have space for 5 uploads of pictures.  If you have more to share, please complete this survey as many times as needed.

This will be completed until early fall so feel free to upload some pictures of the fair after it is completed.

Thank you for your help and assistance!

Be sure to check out the 4-H style revue and the open modeling during the fair.  This year, this will take place on Saturday, August 7, 2021, starting at 1:00 p.m.  

All 4-H clothing exhibitors are strongly encouraged to model the outfits they made for their project this year.

Anyone is welcome to participate in the open modeling.

Come cheer on the 4-H members in their projects and the general public participating in open modeling.  We hope to see you there!

Fair Pass and Fair Bucks Reminder

 

Hi families!  Just a reminder to please pick up your fair passes and fair bucks.  As a reminder, all youth who completed their non-livestock projects and all other non-market animals are eligible for their $10 in fair bucks.  This includes breeding and pet rabbits, breeding sheep, non-market goats, llamas/alpacas, dogs, horses, non-market dairy, non-market beef, and non-market poultry.

Hours at the fair office are Tuesday-Friday, 8:30-4:30.

4-H Cultural Immersion Project Opportunity

The best way to understand a different culture is to immerse yourself in it. Apply to be part of the Cultural Immersion project experience in Puerto Rico. You will build multicultural skills and understanding, as well as an increased ability to communicate in the increasingly diverse society that we live in. You will experience both the Old San Juan urban area as well as life in the remote mountain town of Castañer. We will also be working with 4-H youth from Puerto Rico in joint service projects.

Teens ages 15-19 (as of date of trip) are eligible for this 8-day service-learning experience. The cost of the experience is $500 plus airfare (est. $600). Limited scholarship funds are also available.

I would love to see Greene County youth participate.  I attended this as a 4-H professional several years ago and it was wonderful.  Feel free to ask me any questions!
