Beginning in 2019, all club advisors will be required to attend a face-to-face Advisor Training Update. In order to make this request as convenient to you as possible, we are providing the three scheduled training dates to you three months in advance. We know that February can be a very busy time for you and your family, so we will offer the very same training on three occasions. Please make plans to attend one of the three training dates. Should you have any questions, please be sure to ask! We are planning to provide you with lots of juicy details that should make your work with the 4-H club easier and more enjoyable! …and did I mention that there will be refreshments?!? =) We look forward to seeing you at one of the three programs!
The Licking County OSU Extension Office will be closed on Monday, November 12, 2018 in recognition of Veterans Day. We will resume normal office hours on Tuesday.
