4-H Council Update

Franklin County

October Council Meeting Cancelled!

You are off the hook! At our last council meeting, we determined that no meeting would be necessary in October. (See minutes below) We will hold officer elections at our November meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 16th at the Extension Office. Meeting starts at 7 p.m. Hope to see you there!

4-H Council By-Laws Change

Over the last two years, the 4-H Council has tried to minimize the time we were asking you to devote to Council meetings. So, we incorporated our meetings into other activities, such as the Advisor Appreciation Night or the 4-H Volunteer Conference. While it was great to see so many faces at our combined meetings, we felt that sometimes we didn't have enough information to share that required eight meetings per year. And we certainly don't want to waste your time! So, we discussed changing our By-Laws to reflect that decision.

At our November meeting, we will vote on changing our By-Laws to state that a MINIMUM of four meetings will take place each year. We decided to holding meetings in February, May/June, September and November. And we will continue to keep you up-to-date on Council activities through these emails. If you would like to be part of that vote, please attend our November meeting.

Special Thank You!

4-H Pork Dinner Success

Thank you to Scott Einsel for his generous offer to pay for our pork this year, and Franklin County Farm Bureau who purchased and donated all of the Creative Baking goodies to our dinner! We appreciate all of the help from our advisors and club members during the dinner, too. And thank you to everyone who donated food items. You have made a difference with our program in Franklin County!
