December 2017 Advisory Board Updates

A new era of county advisory board districts

During the last few months the Mower County 4-H advisory board has been discussing the county 4-H districts.  Because of changes in membership patterns throughout the last several years the membership across the districts had become unbalanced, the advisory board appointed a special committee to explore the districts.  The committee reviewed maps of current districts, clubs and members.

In the last several years, club membership has become based less on a member’s geographic location.  Today more members are choosing their clubs based on interest, meeting schedule or club activities. So therefore, the re-districting committee proposed to restructure the clubs based on club groupings instead of geographic location to get to more balanced district numbers. 

The group renamed the districts to the four “H’s” of the 4-H program.  The committee recommended the following club groupings:

  • Head: Windom, Red Rock Rangers, Rock Solid
  • Heart: Country Aces, Southside, LeRoy Wide-A-Wake
  • Hands: Lyle Area Willing Workers, Racine Ramblers, Lucky Clovers
  • Health: Enterprise, Rough Riders

The committee presented this information to the advisory board meeting and the board voted to adopt the proposal.

Congratulations to New Officers

At the December Advisory Board meeting, the group voted to install Brody Erickson as the East Junior Representative and Megan Erickson as the East Female Adult Representative. Congratulations to them!

There is still a vacancy for the East Male Adult Representative.  If you or someone you know may be interested in this position, please encourage them to come to the next advisory board meeting.
