4-H in Lac Qui Parle County

    Message from Jennifer: It’s a new season of doing in 4-H
    Interim Minnesota 4-H state leader Jennifer Skuza celebrates all the ways youth and adults can take action in 4-H. As the new program year begins, set your intentions for a year full of doing.
    Apps for the state horse and dog shows
    The 4-H State Horse Show will be on Sept. 14-17. The 4-H State Dog Show will happen Sept. 22-23. Will you be there? Download the app before you go!
    Plan and develop your club’s budget
    It’s time for 4-H clubs to develop their annual budgets. Budgets provide a written plan for raising and spending money to accomplish club goals. Sharing budget reports with your club throughout the year is a great way to help all 4-H members understand where and how funds are being used.
    Keep youth safe when participating in 4-H programs
    Now is the time of year to plan for risk and keeping youth safe as they participate in a variety of programs, activities and events. Use our online planning tool and risk management materials to ensure safe and healthy environments for youth and adults participating in 4-H programs and activities.
    Plan to attend annual volunteer training this fall
    Powerful things happen for youth when they’re in a positive relationship with caring adults. The 2018 annual volunteer training, “4-H Grows Relationships,” will ready youth and adult volunteers to connect to young people in meaningful ways. Dates and locations are planned across the state this fall. Be sure to bring a team of youth and adult volunteers.
