Kevin Tatum, County Extension Coordinator
We want to congratulate Savannah Cothern, Glenn O'Steen, and Jenna Sears for all receiving a blue ribbon, and J.C. Smith for all receiving a red ribbon with their 4-H mini-booths in the Okefenokee Agricultural Fair in Waycross during the week of November 6-10. Savannah Cothern prepared a booth on dairy foods, Glenn O'Steen's booth was on bridges, Jenna Sears' booth was on crocheting, and J.C. Smith's booth was on the bass clarinet. Congratulations to each of our participants.
Coke/Krispy Kreme Fundraiser
To help 4-H members reduce their cost of attending summer camp, 4-H has planned a Coca-Cola Truckload Sale and Krispy Kreme Donut Sale. For each case of drinks you sell, $3 will be applied to your camp cost. For each dozen of donuts you sell, $2 will be applied to your camp cost. The more you sell, the lower your camp fee will be. The sales begin now and end Monday, December 17. Please collect the money when you make the sale. All order forms and money are due in the 4-H office onDecember 17 by 4 PM. The donuts and the drinks can be picked up at the 4-H office on Thursday, January 3 from 1-4 PM. So have your parents pick up an order form from the 4-H office today.
Junior/Senior Project Achievement
Junior/Senior 4-H members need to be working on completing their DPA presentation as well as their portfolios. Portfolio final copies are due in the county 4‑H office by Friday, December 14. Your presentation needs to be ready now so you will have time to practice it before the competition. We want each of you to have a competitive portfolio and demonstration so you have a good chance of standing on the stage receiving a first place award.
Call or come by the 4‑H office today to sign up for a project (first come, first choice). 4‑H staff members will be happy to help you get started and answer any questions you have as you work on your presentation.
