Friday 4-H Nugget
Fellow 4-H Community,

What a past two weeks it has been! From our first snowfall to our 4-H Educators attending their professional development conference. As you know 4-H enrollment season is here and in full swing. Be sure that you enroll soon (both youth and adult volunteers). The Thanksgiving holiday is right around the corner and we are thankful for our volunteers, members and supporters of our 4-H program. There are many great upcoming events and programs so be sure to read over this newsletter to stay up to date.

Leaders Banquet Information
It was with a lot of thoughtful conversation that we decided to cancel our Volunteer Banquet on November 12. The cancellation took place because of the inclement weather. This is a good reminder to us all that if schools are closed due to weather then 4-H programming for that day is also closed. We hope that you understand that we place safety at the top of our list. Stay tuned for news as we are putting together a condensed version for this spring. Thank you for all you do!
