Are you wondering if it is too late to complete a record book for this 4-H year . . .by the June 28th deadline? The answer no! Especially, if your child is a junior, 8-9-or 10; or an intermediate, 11-12-or 13[all 4-H age, as of 8-31-12]. The format was totally changed last year, so everything you might have heard about record books is not true anymore. Even if your child is a first time senior, 14 and older, they could still do a book. . . really!
Come see for yourself – parent and child[ren] are invited to attend one of 2 record book workshops that will be offered in the next couple of weeks. The first will be this Thursday, June 6th, 4-5:30 at the Extension Office, the other will be on Saturday, June 15th, 9-12noon at the Extension Office. Bring your lap tops, because we now have wireless capabilities in the office. To help you complete a record book, collect some photos of your child with their project, doing/action photos are good. Also, bring your calendar, with ‘things’ your child has done this year in 4-H. Community service, any type of leadership, contests, etc.
Please contact the Office at (940)668-5412 if you plan to attend.
