Achievement Banquets – Yes, there will be TWO this year. Please READ!

Thank you to all members who completed an Ohio Achievement Form or Junior Achievement Form. Because our program to recognize these members has grown to 40 youth completing the Ohio 4-H Achievement Form and 73 completing the Junior Achievement Form, we have outgrown the facilities where this recognition is held. A great problem to have!

Therefore, we will have two recognition events(Achievement Banquets) this year.

For all Older Youth who completed the Ohio 4-H Achievement Form we will have your recognition night on Tuesday, April 5th, at Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll, starting at 7:00 p.m.

For all Junior Achievement participants we will have your recognition night on Tuesday, May 3rd, at Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Look for your invitation in the mail soon and hope to see all you at these events. If questions, please contact the office at 740-652-7260.
