~~~Summer Success~~~
We know that 4-H is hard—especially when you are new—but it’s worth it! Projects, clubs, rules, requirements, and then there’s the county fair! In order to help you and your child be successful, a series of short emails will be sent to help you navigate the summer and come out successful! The topic of each email will be listed in the subject line. I’m sending them to everyone, not just new members. If it doesn’t pertain to you, feel free to delete it. I promise they will be short, sweet and to the point. If at any time you have questions about what we say, be sure to respond to the email or give us a call. They will come from me (Verla) and be different than the UPdate I send. You’ve invested a lot so far in this 4-H experience and we want you to end it on a high note.
