Calumet 4-H Halloween Meeting & Scavenger Hunt Photos

What to do when your October meeting is on the last warm night of the year and there is a full moon?  Have a selfie photo scavenger hunt. Teams had to take a selfie of their team at each of the 10 locations around our meeting site. A good time was had by all.  We began the evening with our annual Halloween costume parade.

Thriving Survey- FDL Co needs 6 more surveys completed to be able to use the data!

Fond du Lac County is participating in the #4HThriving Model survey! I REALLY WANT TO USE THIS DATA TO SUPPORT FOND DU LAC COUNTY 4-H! Parents with youth ages 13-19, please check your e-mails from Monday 10/4 and then a reminder that was sent on 10/8. Additional reminders will be sent until you actually complete the survey!!! This link is tied to your 4-H Online account, so you don't have to answer redundant questions! Your participation will help make decisions for upcoming programs, training, and resources. Don’t forget, those who complete the survey will be entered to win a $25 gift card! The survey link will be open until October 29.
The original e-mail came from someone named Jossett Gauley and was sent from the state through 4-H Online. It was done this way to be able to track young people's experiences in our program over time and to ensure we don't ask for information that we already have through our enrollment system.
