Message from MariJo......

Yes, it is the Holidays, and we all find ourselves caught up in the hustle and bustle of shopping, baking, cleaning, decorating and probably shoveling out also.  With that in mind, our 4-h program has scheduled a few, hopefully not too many, stress free, fun events for our 4-H families to participate in.  Below you will see the information about them.

Volunteer/Youth Leader Retreat - this is scheduled for December 2nd.  Registration for this event is closed, but we have 61 people planning to attend this great networking and friend making day.

Ambassador Christmas Party - This will take place on Friday evening, December 8th.   A group of our Ambassadors are planning a very fun evening for us.  Stay tuned for more information.

Cookie Bake and Exchange - On Thursday, December 14th, 4th-8th graders are invited to come to Northern Pines camp to bake some Christmas Cookies.  We will then do a cookie exchange.  Space is limited so register soon.  Cost is $5.00.

4-H Movie Day - Hubbard County 4-H has reserved the Park Rapids theater for all of our 4-H families.  Join us on Saturday, December 16th at 11:00 a.m. to watch the movie TROLLS.  This is a free event, but we do ask you to bring a donation for the food shelf.  The theater will have party packs (popcorn, pop, and candy) available for $4.50.

TUBING Party - 7th graders and up are invited to come to a multi-county tubing party at Detroit Mountain on Wednesday, December 20th.  The cost is $10 per person.  You must register with Mari Jo at the office.

Please watch your emails and face book for some upcoming project days after the new year.  We hope to offer some wood working, quilting, sewing, bee keeping, painting and many more classes.
