Fallbrook 4-H begins the year

The Fallbrook 4-H has been busy this month. They had a great signup meeting on October 7 with a huge crowd turning out to find out what 4-H has to offer to the youth of our community.

Project meetings have been starting up this month. The community pride group has continued to collect food for the Food Pantry and packed items there on October 20. Last weekend, they served at the Reche Schoolhouse fundraiser.

The beginning cooking group had 15 kids make black cat cookies, while the vet science project members learned about what it takes to become a veterinarian from Dr. Steve Colburn. They also discussed what makes an animal healthy. Kids were able to listen to the heartbeat of a dog and see how a physical of a dog is conducted.

There is still time to sign up for Fallbrook 4-H. Our next community meeting will be held November 4 at 7 p.m. in the Fallbrook High cafeteria. Youth ages 5 to 18 are invited to come check out the possibilities. From raising animals to public speaking, community service to archery, there is a group that will interest everyone.

Our November meeting will include awards for last year’s record books and attendance, opportunities to meet others in the group and announcements about what is planned for the club this year. Next up will be our annual Christmas Parade entry.

If you have questions about 4-H, call (760) 723-6171.
