JUNE TAGGING & ID UPDATE

Greetings 4-H Families,

This week we will have some new information coming out in regard to the 2024 Henry County Fair. But first, I’d like to address the June Tag-In.

Please review this JUNE TAG-IN INFORMATION document.

This information includes the following projects:

  • Feeder Calves
  • Market Lambs
  • Market Goats
  • Rabbits – Breeding, Single Roasters, & Doe of Doe & Litter Projects

Please review & reach out to me with any questions.

Sincerely,

Morgan Parcher

DOG PROJECT UPDATES

Greetings 4-H Dog Project Families!

My apologies this was not sent out sooner – I’ve been trying to keep all aspects of the Junior Fair up to date & this fell off my radar!

The 2024 Dog Project Member Packet is now LIVE, it can be found on the Dog Resource’s Page.

Keep in mind, we now have a Dog Resources Page on the blog site as well! You are always welcome to refer to any of the information provided there!

There will be a Dog Project Informational meeting on May 14, 2024 at 6:00pm at the Ag Hall Building. All Dog Project exhibitors are encouraged to attend!

Katie Reimund is joining us as the Dog Program Coordinator again this year, she will also be assisted by Stacey Weasel, 4-H Volunteer. At their request, I have created a “Remind” group to communicate any cancellations or modifications for those evening workshops. Katie & Stacey coordinate and organize evening workshops for members to practice with their dogs – this information is all included in the Dog Member Packet.

As always, please reach out to me with any questions! If I can’t answer them, Katie is an excellent resource to reach out to as well!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT CAMP???

4-H Camp is the one program I know most of our 4-H’ers look forward to EVERY YEAR. 

Our 4-H Camp Counselors and Camp Staff have been working to bring a exciting and fun camp experience to you this year!

The information included in this packet will help you familiarize yourself with what to expect when signing up for camp this year. Our office thought this packet would be a great tool to help guide the decision making process when the registration link opens!

Our 2024 Henry County 4-H Camp Registration will go live on MAY 1! (took a bit longer to get online payments connected)

Be on the lookout for the “Camp Registration is Open!” email on that day!

In the meantime, I encourage families to review the 2024 Henry County 4-H Information Packet and get hyped for this year’s Henry County 4-H Camp!
