The 2017 4-H Achievement Banquet is approaching quickly. This year’s banquet will be at the Shelby County Extension Office at 7 p.m. on December 14. All 4-H members and their families are invited to attend. We will be recognizing each club and project group in Shelby County 4-H at our event.
We would like to have a slide show of various club activities and events. If you have photos you would like to submit for use in the slide show, please send them to Candice Fulcher. Email pictures to [email protected] or they can be downloaded from an SD card. If you have questions about submitting pictures, please call us. We would like to have all clubs and groups included in the slide show. All pictures need to be in BEFORE November 15.
Award winners for the Outstanding Senior, “I Dare You Award,” and Matt Edwards Award will be announced at the banquet. Nominations by club leaders, parents, or 4-H members are due to the Shelby County 4-H office by November 15. If you have questions about these awards, please contact Candice Fulcher or Regina Browning
Shelby County 4-H will be providing fried chicken and drinks. We ask that 4-H members bring a salad or side dish if they are a girl, and a dessert if they are a boy to share with the group.
In addition, all 4-H members are encouraged to bring food for the Backpack Project as a community service project. This program provides food for young people in need by filling a backpack with food, on weekends and breaks from school. Food that can be easily opened by a child without a can opener is needed. Examples of items that can be donated include: pop-tarts, cereal bars, granola bars, fruit cups, fruit snacks, pudding cups, cheese crackers and canned foods with pop tops. No foods with peanuts or peanut butter can be accepted.
