4-H News – Nancy Lambert – 8-11-16


Federation Meeting Scheduled
The Saline County 4-H Federation will hold a business meeting on Monday, August 15, at 5:00 p.m. at the Watkins’ house. At the last meeting, members present voted to have a wiener roast. Federation will provide the hot dogs, s’mores, and drinks.
The August meeting of the Federation is also the time that we plan for National 4-H Week. We will be choosing a theme for the next 4-H year, so come prepared with ideas.
Have you ever thought about being a Federation officer? To become a Federation officer, you need to be at least 12 years old, be at least a 2-year member of 4-H, and be a Federation Delegate from your club.
Join us on August 15th to pick up an officer petition! Officers are expected to attend the monthly Federation meetings and, as the youth representation on the Saline County 4-H Management Committee, to attend the quarterly Management Committee meetings as well.
Completed petitions are due by the September Federation meeting and officers will be elected at that time.
