4-H Camp Ohio has a wish list on Amazon that anyone can contribute to. The list is constantly changing, so this is a quick and easy way to see what camp currently needs. The list can be found here: http://a.co/cG41Ntr. When you make a purchase, it can be shipped directly to Camp Ohio, so you don’t have to worry about dropping it off yourself!
The 2020 Licking County 4-H Calendar can be found on our website here. Please note that the calendar will be updated as additional events become available or as corrections need made.

The Licking County 4-H GrandPals program is beginning its 15th year. The GrandPals program is a partnership with Cherry Valley Elementary in which fourth grade students are partnered with a senior citizen pen pal (GrandPal) from the community. Students and GrandPals will each write four letters back and forth, with the final letter being given in person at our end-of-the-year celebration. This program helps the students learn writing skills in real-world applications. We are in need of additional GrandPals to ensure that each student has someone to write to. If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming a GrandPal, please contact Adrienne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740.670.5315. If you are interested, please let Adrienne know by December 6th.
The Licking County OSU Extension Office will be closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th so that we may celebrate Thanksgiving with our families. We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday together. We will resume normal business hours on Monday, December 2nd.
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.
All Licking County 4-H families are welcome to join us for the annual 4-H Achievement Night on Thursday, November 21st at C-TEC (150 Price Road, Newark). All youth being recognized, as well as all advisors being recognized for years of service, have been sent invitations by mail. We look forward to an evening filled with food, fun and recognition! If you’re able to attend, please email or call to confirm – just to ensure we have plenty of desserts!

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.
SAVE THE DATE: 4-H Camp Ohio’s Adventure 5K is scheduled for November 9th. Saturday October 19th is the last day to per-register and guaranteed a Quick Dry Shirt. Register at www.campohioadventure.com
