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.
Some of you may remember that Ohio hosted the conference last year. Both Lisa and Adrienne are looking forward to not being in charge of anything and are happy to just enjoy the conference this year.
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.
