Each project meets at different times/days/# of meetings, depending On the project leader, who is a volunteer.

The mission statement of 4H is "TO MAKE THE BEST, BETTER".

It is all about learning new skills, leadership and community service.

Youth Fair Checks are here!!


and boy did HomeGrown CASH IN this year!  cha-ching!


I will endeavor to have these checks on me at all times.  And of course I will definitely have them at the next HG4H meeting.  You are free to make arrangements to have a friend get your check from me, but they must be willing to sign/take responsibility for the check.  You are also welcome to stop by my house (I'm behind lakeland square mall and my exact address is on the forum)... just call to make sure I am home!


Please know that the checks are valid for 90 days, after which, they WILL NOT reissue a check if you forget to cash it - so get those suckers in the bank right away!!


Congratulations everyone, from the PAGES of entries I just sorted through, y'all thoroughly represented at Youth Fair this year!


I have received several emails from members with problems accessing the forum.  So if you can only see the home and calendar tabs:  Please note that Step 4 has two parts.  The first is to register for the site.  The second is to email me, Sonja (renee@philipdom.com).

If you dont email me, I dont know that you have registered and I cant get you activated on the site.  Everyone who wishes to be on this forum must have already registered with us.  This is the way we keep this group completely private and safe for its members.  I apologize if it seems somewhat cumbersome, but the alternative is worse, so please have patience.

Registration is closed for the 2014-2015 4-H year.  We will reopen in August of 2015.
