A new year for Fallbrook 4-H
Last updated 8/31/2007 at Noon
The Fallbrook 4-H has begun their plans for a new year. During the off-season, many members of Fallbrook 4-H have attended fairs with their animals and conferences. The San Diego County Fair, which began in the middle of June, was a great success for those who raised animals and entered in the fine arts. Congratulations to everyone!
Some of the members of the Fallbrook 4-H club also attended the State Leadership Conference up in Sacramento. The members who attended were wowed by inspirational speakers, had fun at the recreational activities and got to see what college dorms and life were like. The members who went were Wade Colburn, Patrick Rogers, Jessica Dreher, Kelsie Mathews and chaperone Mrs. Rogers.
The Fallbrook 4-H club also found out over the summer that Kelsie Mathews will be serving as a State Ambassador from our club this coming year. Great Job, Kelsie!
Fallbrook 4-H is now welcoming all new and returning members back for another year. The first meeting of the year will take place on September 4. At the meeting we will discuss the many new and old projects, hold signups and tell you about our wonderful theme for the year.
Some of the new projects include Beginning 4-H, small engines and event planning. Beginning 4-H is a project which gives the kids a chance to experience all of the projects in our club. This is highly recommended for younger or first-year members.
Small engines is a project in which you will be taking apart and be able to work with the engines which help us day after day.
Finally, event planning is a project in which you learn about planning an event. You learn all aspects like invitations, food and entertainment, which prepares you for your final project.
Fallbrook 4-H also has many other projects, including beef, archery, horses, community pride, floriculture, quilting, advanced cooking, sheep, swine, veal, crafts, goats, small animals, poultry and vet science.
For the first time ever, the Fallbrook 4-H club will be having a theme for the new year: “Go Green,” which is going to be presented in all of the speakers and activities we partake in. The purpose of this theme is to try and bring all of our kids toward a common goal, which they can work on in the community and at home.
So, come to the high school cafeteria at 7 p.m. September 4 to sign up or to find out more about Fallbrook 4-H. If you have any questions, please call Karen Colburn at (760) 723-6171.
