CCE Oneida County 121 Second Street, Oriskany, NY 13424
Dear 4-H Parents, Leaders and Volunteers,
It’s hard to believe the start of the new 4-H Year is just around the corner (October 1st).
Oneida County 4-H along with the State and National offices have undergone some significant changes over the past several months. These changes are bringing forth a renewed initiative to resurrect the traditional values and educational opportunities that 4-H has been known for. Our primary focus will continue to be Youth Development, along with our mission mandates of Civic Responsibility, Healthy Lifestyles, and STEM.
None of this would be possible without the commitment of our volunteers. We respect your efforts and in the future we want to be able to support you more. In order to do this we must open the doors of communication. At this workshop we will be discussing the upcoming changes as well as investigating solutions to some of your suggestions, concerns and comments.
4-H Leaders are required to attend at lest one youth development workshop each year. The Enrollment meeting counts as this one event. If you send someone else to this meeting Leaders will still be required to attend one youth development meeting within the upcoming/current year. Watch the 4-H newsletter for information about youth development workshops.
Oneida County has a large proportion of Independent 4-H Members. For various reasons these youth are unable to participate in the typical "Club" format. We STRONGLY encourage parents of these youth to attend our Leader meetings.
We look forward to another successful 4-H Year. We couldn't do it without you!
Meeting starts at 10am light snacks served.
Once again we will be distributing the Joanne fabrics Donations at this meeting come prepared to take stuff back for your members. Remember if you take something it must be used at a 4-H meeting and shown at the fair.
