March - April  2016
Pender County 4-H
County Activity Day/County Council Meeting 
Rescheduled Presentations 

This year we will do this a little differently than the last. We will hear all the presentations at the next County Council Meeting on April 25 starting at 6:00 at the Burgaw Extension Office. Please come prepared to present your topic. Folks who are doing outdoor cookery will also be presenting that night as well. In addition there will be a a short county council meeting to get us started. Please bring a long sleeve shirt of any kind to the meeting to donate to the migrant workers of Pender County. This can count as a Community Service Project. 

*NOTE: The County Council date was moved to Monday instead of Tuesday on the original calendar.  

Volunteer Club Leader Training 
April 12, 2016 at 11:45

This training is for all volunteers new and old and we will be discussing summer programs and teen involvement. Remember you must attend 2 of the 3 training sessions that are offered this year. Lunch will be provided at this training. Please let Jessica know if you are unable to attend. 

Fundraising for Pender County 4-H 

Pender County 4-H will have a booth set up at the Old River Farms Spring Fest, April 23, and at the 2016 Burgaw Springfest May 7. We will be making 4-H Centennial   Snickerpoodles (doggie treats), and Clover Crisp Sugar Cookies to sell at both of these events. This is an opportunity to learn a new recipe and enjoy time with other 4-Hers. Please contact Ms. Jessica to help with this project. County Council Officers will be at both events and help with preparation. 

Participating in community events helps the public understand what 4-H is and allows for other youth to get involved. The reason we do these types of fundraisers is to help send youth to overnight summer camp, keep day camp at a low cost, help teens attend district and state level events and lastly to continue to provide monthly programs and events by the county 4-H program. 

Pender County Summer Adventures  

This will be a summer that your kids will not want to miss! The 2016 Summer Adventures registration is OPEN starting April 1, 2016, and will close June 3, 2016. Please set up an appointment with Ms. Jessica to reserve your space at camp! The possibilities are endless at 4-H Camp! There are limited spaces to every camp so please make appointments quick!
