Franklin County 4-H News - May 2016
WELCOME TO FRANKLIN COUNTY 4-H
TEN THINGS EVERY 4-H'er SHOULD DO...
- Pay close attention to communications from your club advisor. You don't want to miss important events, deadlines, or instructions that could impact your eligibility to participate.
- Pay close attention to these newsletters and updates that you'll receive from Beth Boomershine. There is always important information that is intended to keep you informed about Franklin County 4-H and Ohio 4-H events and opportunities. We promise we won't send you spam.
- Know the requirements for completing your project. You can find that information HERE.
- Keep track of important dates. Have you checked out these sources?

Franklin County Fair Information
- If you are taking a livestock project, make sure you get your I.D. forms in by the correct date. Check out the Livestock Requirement Summary for details.
- Don't forget to make your fair entries online by June 18. Ask your club advisor how to do this.
- Please note that the 4-H program does not oversee the Franklin County Fair. We are very fortunate that the Fair Board works closely with 4-H to allow our members to be a part of such a wonderful event. They require our members to make fair entries to take part in project evaluations and contests for ribbons and awards. For the fair to run smoothly, they require fair entries!
- Present a project demonstration for your club. Ask your advisor how to do this. Enhance your public speaking skills!
- Take part in a club community service project! Use your hands to larger service.
- Celebrate your accomplishments! This fall, you'll have the opportunity to apply for awards that recognize you for your 4-H participation and then attend the Awards Ceremony on November 7.
- Most importantly, HAVE FUN! Take the many opportunities at events this summer to get to know 4-H members from other clubs, demonstrate good sportsmanship, and enjoy the experience as we Make the Best Better.
In the Spirit of 4-H,
Beth Boomershine & Sue Hogan
