4-H Endowment Dinner Thank You

Thank you to everyone that supported the recent 4-H Endowment Dinner with your donations, buying auction items, attending the dinner, or working at the event. The event was a huge success serving 412 dinners!!!!

The event cleared over $31,000 and will be divided between the Marietta Community Foundation Fund, 4-H Endowment Fund at OSU, and funds for the 2022 Camp Director position. The 4-H Endowment Fundraising committee is also discussing potential improvement projects for the Jr Fair Building.

Update on Kentucky Service Project

I wanted to share an update on my efforts thus far in my efforts to raise funds for Kentucky tornado survivors.  On Feb.26th, my 4-H club, Churchtown Busy Bunch, joined my cause and served desserts at the Beverly Legion steak fry netting $364.20.  During FFA week in Feb., the Fort Frye FFA Chapter held a kiss the calf competition netting over $500 to be sent to a FFA Chapter in Kentucky that had members affected by this tornado. I personally doing a quilt to raise funds. I have presented at a  Lion’s Club meeting and am scheduled to present at another, generating donations from donations as well.   I continue to be in contact with a 4-H Extension Agent  assessing needs of specific 4-H’ers affected.  As soon as I get exact details on how to get our money to the specific 4-H’ers affected, I will pass that information along.  So again, I am challenging each Washington County 4-H club to join my efforts.  Any effort, no matter the size, is genuinely appreciated.  Should you have questions feel free to contact myself @ 740-516-6263 or my mom Ellie @ 740-434-3064.

Sincerely, Isaiah Tullius

CARTEENS is Searching for Teen Members

The Washington County CARTEENS club is recruiting new members.  If you are a youth ages 14-18 years of age we would like to talk to you!  CARTEENS is a 4H club that uses teen presenters to teach their peers traffic safety.  The club meets once a month on the 2nd Wednesday.  Teen members earn community service hours, learn public speaking skills, and make new friendships.  Teens also gain traffic safety confidence while organizing fun, hands on activities during presentations.  CARTEENS members may belong to another 4H club or may be brand new to 4H!  Join us for our next CARTEENS meeting to observe and meet our current members.  Call 740-376-7431 to reserve your spot and talk with the advisor or current members for more details.
