Dear 4-H Family:Hope everybody had a happy fair!! If you did not see my Facebook page during the Fair, I want to share the following post from Alissa Woodward. I hope it makes you laugh as hard as it made me!“Well, now that my last year at the fair as a 4-Her has passed, I’ve decided to make a list of the things I’ve learned during my own experience that I’m sure many of you campers can relate to:1.) Despite what you think, you did NOT pack enough socks. And by the end of the week your camper will smell like feet.2.) Whatever Vickie and Janine says, goes.3.) You do not have friends in your club. You have family. You fight and bicker like family and you help and love each other like family.4.) Fair ‘crushes’ are real and they are very serious, weeklong relationships.5.) A child’s project is THEIR responsibility, not their parent’s.6.) You can easily spot visitors amongst campers and 4-Hers. They’re the ones who don’t look sleep deprived and dirty. (My personal favorite!)7.) Fair food is a blessing and a curse. Proceed with caution.8.) Even if you don’t know how to square dance, go to the square dance!9.) Our animals are our priority all week.10.) Your parents and club help you and support you a tremendous amount all week and deserve a huge thank you.My time in 4-H has been amazing and I will truly miss it. I want to thank everyone who has made this such a great part of my life. I’ve learned so much! I love you all.”If any other alumni have something to share about what 4-H has meantin their lives, send your thoughts to me and you can get a front pageof a Newsletter.
4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT FOR YOUR CLUB?You might be interested in the C(ancer) D(ietary) I(niative) Monthly Food Distribution that is held from 10:00-11:30 a.m. on the 3rdSaturday of each month at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Steubenville. CDI services needy cancer patients of theTeramanaCancer Center who are struggling with treatment costs.Volunteers sort food, pack bags and then move bags from the basement of the church to the parking lot for disbursement to the patients. They offer a lunch at 11:30 for all volunteers and the work is done by Noon.As most of the volunteers who run this program are older, they desperately need young people to help with this worthy cause. In June, these volunteers served 91 families who are dealing with cancer.If you are interested, please contact DonHeiss@ 740.264.1823.This is a great cause and I hope that some of you can make the time and helpout.
