Advanced Achievement Form Workshop

On November 24, 2019, Teen Leadership Council will be hosting their second Achievement Form Workshop at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center from 6:00-8:00 PM!

This second workshop is specifically for those teens who have already started/previously completed their Achievement Record Form and would like feedback. Teens who RSVP will receive 1 on 1 coaching from individuals who are experienced and have had success in submitting their Achievement Record at the state level.

This is a great opportunity for those who will be submitting their forms to the state or for those who hope to improve their forms for future selection.

We Did It!

We did it! We raised over $30,000 to help fund the bathroom renovation project at 4-H Camp Ohio! We were overwhelmed with the support everyone showed to make this project a reality. In the end, we raised $31,008 through the Buckeye Funder Campaign. That doesn’t include all of the donations sent directly to camp. Thank you to everyone who donated or shared the information so that we were able to reach so many people. The bathrooms will be renovated before the summer camping seasons starts for 2020. So, if you drop kids off to camp next summer, be sure to “make a trip to the restroom” to check out the renovated facilities!

Lisa and Adrienne Are Hittin’ The Road!

Lisa and Adrienne will be out of the office November 4-8, 2019 to attend the National Associations of Extension 4-H Agents Annual Conference in West Virginia. Should you need to reach them before they are back in the office on November 12th, please send them an email and they will do their best to get back to you in a timely fashion. They are always looking for ideas on how to better the Licking County 4-H Program, and hope to learn some new things while they are there.

Time’s Almost Up! The 4-H Camp Ohio Bathroom Restoration Project Needs Your Help!

Time is running out to make your pledge to the 4-H Camp Ohio Bathroom Restoration Project. At the time of posting this, we are still 40% away from our goal of $30,000. The last day to give through Buckeye Funder is October 31, 2019. We would love to reach our goal so that we can start the renovation process so that we can have the new bathrooms ready to use for next camping season. You can find the campaign at https://buckeyefunder.osu.edu/project/16725. If you miss the chance to give online or would rather pay with a check, you can send your payments directly to 4-H Camp Ohio at 11461 Camp Ohio Road, St. Louisville, Ohio 43071. Please mark that the donation should be used towards the Bathroom Restoration Project or 4-H Camp Ohio Facilities Improvements.
