JUNIOR/SENIOR DISTRICT PROJECT ACHEIVEMENT
Junior and Senior 4-H members are reminded that FINAL portfolio copies for DPA are due on Friday, Dec. 15. Portfolios count for 40 percent of Junior DPA scores and 50 percent of Senior DPA scores. DPA will be held on Friday, Feb. 9, through Sunday, Feb. 11, at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center. Be sure you have these dates saved on your calendar.
4-H members interested in attending summer 4‑H camp should take advantage of the second Coca-Cola Truckload Sale. It will begin on Monday, Nov. 27 and end on Monday, Dec. 18. All orders and moneys are due by 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 18.
The drinks will be ready for pick up at the 4-H office on Wednesday, Jan. 3, between 2 and 4 p.m. at the 4-H office. Remember, 4-H members get $3 per case sold towards their summer camp fee. So, the more you sell, the less you have to pay to go to summer camp.
