4-H Awards Ceremony Sunday, Nov. 8

Greene County 4-H members and volunteers will be recognized for their achievements and contributions at the annual Greene County 4-H Awards Ceremony, scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 8, at 2 pm at the Greene County High School auditorium. The public is welcome to attend.

Awards will recognize 4-H members for their achievements in a variety of project areas, from science and engineering to swine and poultry.  More than 50 4-H members submitted their record books this year, documenting their work.  Meanwhile, leaders and adult volunteers who have served five, ten, 15, 20, 25, or more years in the 4-H program will receive much deserved accolades. Local businesses, past Extension staff, and current or past volunteers will also be awarded for their volunteer time and promotion of the 4-H program. A reception with refreshments will wrap up the afternoon’s activities.

 4-H members are also reminded to finish the online re-enrollment process for the 2015-2016 4-H year.  The deadline for re-enrolling is by the close of business, 4:30 pm, on Monday, Nov. 16.  There will be a late fee of $25 if the online process and the enrollment fees are not turned in on time. If families are having difficulties re-enrolling online, they may set up an appointment with Extension staff to complete the re-enrollment process. New 4-H members are welcome to join at any time during the 4-H year without the late fee penalty.

“The 4-H year is off to a great start, we have already seen an increase in new member interest this year and hope to continue that trend,” said Sarah Jo Reynolds, Greene County Extension’s youth and 4-H coordinator. “I’d encourage parents and youth interested in 4-H to take time to attend our awards ceremony and see the wonderful skills 4-H’ers are learning each year.”
