Red Wheel Fundraiser
We will begin selling Red Wheel the first week of October as a fund raiser for those 4-H’ers that are interested in going on the Washington D.C. 4-H trip. Order forms will be mailed out the first of the week, and selling for the entire month. Please contact the office if your child is interested in selling Red Wheel so we can mail you out a packet of information.
Orders are due in the office Friday, November 1st.
Delivery will be Saturday, November 23, (presorted) in Wilber at 8 a.m.
**If a county sells 250 items they will earn delivery to their office.
4-H’ers earn 40% of their proceeds which is then applied to their WDC trip costs.

4-H Cat Club
A message for all cat interested youth:
Do you like cats? What about learning how to care for or show them? Maybe you have heard about the 4-H Cat Club in the past and wanted to join, but couldn't make the monthly meetings.
Do we have good news for you, or what? We are pleased to introduce this year's self-paced Cat Club! No more being bummed that you missed the hour long meeting every second Thursday. You will now have access to monthly lessons and activities that you can complete on your own time. The first lesson can be found here on September 5th: https://4h.unl.edu/companion-animal/cat-club
If you are interested, please stay tuned and register today!
