Special Announcements



Reminder: Clubs have participated in the Octoberfest parade in Ravenswood since it was held at the same time as 4-H week. The Octoberfest is NOT being held this year. It was replaced with the Ohio River Festival held in August. I wanted to make sure everyone was aware that the parade would not be occurring this year so that clubs did not prepare parade entries.

4-H WEEK WINDOW DISPLAYS
Many clubs are planning organizational meetings over the next few weeks. I wanted to pass on the information for 4-H week so that clubs may prepare.
The theme for the 2016 4-H Week October 2nd-8th in Jackson County is:

4-H Today = Tomorrow’s Leaders

Please contact Mariah with your window location by Friday, September 30th

Windows will need to be prepared and ready for judging by Wednesday, October 5th. We would love to see the windows done by Sunday, October 2nd so that the public can view them all week.

Some helpful tips in designing your window:
Have an official 4-H Clover and the wording “4-H” on your display
Do not misuse the clover by placing photos, words, etc. over it
Club’s name on the display
Originality of design



TRACTOR SUPPLY CLOVER CAMPAIGN
Theresa Bailey will be sending out information/sign up for time slots on the Tractor Supply Clover Campaign. Please discuss with your group about individuals covering two hour time slots throughout the week after school and on weekends. The days of the campaign are Wednesday, October 5th thru Sunday, October 16th. It does not have to be the entire club to cover the time slot. A parent and their children may cover a time slot.
