Parents, do you have questions about how 4-H camp will be conducted this year? What COVID safety protocols will be in place? How will camp be the same and how will camp be different from in the past? Please join us for a Camp Parents Informational Zoom meeting on Thursday May 13th at 8 pm. Extension staff will provide an overview / update about camp and will answer questions. Not able to join us live? No worries, we plan to record this Zoom and will post a link to the recording soon after it ends.

Our next Junior Leaders meeting will be held on Monday, May 3 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. Since we were unable to complete our annual Bikes for Kids service project back in December, this year we will be helping the senior fair board to assemble sheep pens for this year's fair. After the pens are set up, we will have refreshments and Barry Joliff will lead some games and activities in the sheep arena. We will be meeting at 7:00 PM in the sheep barn. Since the 50-person limit for events has been lifted, no sign-up is needed for this month's meeting! Come ready to help out and have fun!
