Alto All Stars

For the November meeting, the Alto All-Stars 4-H club held a potluck for achievement night. We ate and then handed back record books to the members as well as their awards from the past year. We gave special thanks to the project leaders of our club and to Yvonne for all of the hard work she puts into our club. Everyone had a great time and quite a few members showed up. - Submitted by Leah B

Teen Leaders Association

Teen Leaders Association (TLA) was busy during the month of November. They helped out at officer training leading different officer sessions. Afterward, the group went Rollerskating at Korneli's on the Avenue. The group finished off the month with their monthly meeting and shopping for Toys for Tots donations.  
Youth grades 6th and up can always get involved with TLA as you don't need to register for the group. TLA won't meet in December but will have its next meeting in January. If you would like more information on joining TLA, please contact Tina Engelhardt at tina.engelhardt@wisc.edu

Tips for getting started in your 4-H Club

Attend meetings with your child. You’ll get first-hand information and the leaders appreciate your attendance.
Volunteer. The fastest way to get to know someone is by offering your help. It might be serving refreshments, overseeing a community service project, or helping at a fundraiser…it’s a guaranteed icebreaker!
Scan over the weekly 4-H newsletter (4-H Fridays, also available online). Read articles that interest you, because not all activities are announced at your club meeting. Take advantage of the opportunities!
Ask your club leader to match your family up with a mentor family who you can contact for questions and support.
