Taft 23 Club Promotion

Taft-23 went to a trunk or treat held at St Paul's Church & School in Mt. Calvary. We had a trunk of our own. It was about promoting 4-H. Taft-23 brought a rabbit, a chicken, a sheep, and a kitten. We also promoted the Foods Project, Arts & Crafts, House plants, and Photography Projects.

New Family Orientation

New Family orientation will be held on Thursday, December 1.  New families would include families who have been enrolled for 2 years or less in the 4-H program. We know that 4-H has so many great opportunities available, that it is hard to know about them all. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming, so we will go through the many aspects of 4-H and answer questions. Learn how to find resources available to our members, who to ask for help, and how to get the most out of your 4-H membership!  Please have families RSVP here: https://go.wisc.edu/newfamilydec2022.

Family Learning Day Session Leaders

We are seeking volunteers and youth to be Family Learning Day Presenters. We are seeking volunteers and youth who have creative ideas! If interested in helping plan Family Learning Day 2023, please contact Tracy at tracy.keifenheim@wisc.edu or 920-929-3171.
 Anyone interested in leading a session can fill out this electronic form: https://go.wisc.edu/familylearningday2023presenter or a paper copy. The goal is to offer as many different projects as we can. We also need help recruiting presenters, as the due date is a few days before Tracy takes leave. Getting them in the earlier the better! Thanks.
