Updates from 4-H County Council Meeting

We had a  great 4-H County Council meeting last week and wanted to share some of the highlights with our 4-H families!

The main council business was voting on changes to the North Carolina State 4-H Council Constitution.  The county council members voted on proposed changes and our official county ballot was completed, signed by council officers and also witnesses.  The ballot will be turned in at 4-H Congress in July.

The Council also decided to participate in the Month of the Military Child service project on Saturday, April 28th at the Asheville Armory.  4-H volunteers will assist military youth with projects such as making a photo album, making paper flowers, and also constructing a garden in a glove.  More information about this event will be posted on the blog as details are confirmed.

We also wanted to share the latest club updates since our Achievement Program in January:

Horse Spirits 4-H Club-  Members completed Level 2 of the horse workbooks which focused on horse anatomy and care.  Members also constructed no-sew blankets and donated them to a local women’s shelter.

Lucky Clovers 4-H Club- Madison Baldwin is working on completing the bronze level of the 4-H Ambassador Program.

A Brighter Tomorrow 4-H Club- Members hosted a fish fry fund-raiser to raise money to help members attend the upcoming West District 4-H Teen Retreat.  They are working on a skit for Buncombe County as part of the spirit stick competition at the retreat and members will be volunteering for the Month of the Military Kids event in Asheville.

Clever Clovers 4-H Club- Members just completed the FLL Robotic competitions in Asheville and at the state contest in Greensboro, NC.  They are taking a short break from Robotics but also completed a service project at a local animal shelter.

Newfound 4-H Club- The club hosted their annual club officer elections at their last meeting and also wrote letters for the OMK Military Hero Packs.  The club is also working with Sandy Mush 4-H Club and the Leicester Patriots 4-H Club to plan a benefit for the Cooper family on Saturday, May 5th at the Zion Hill Baptist Church.  More information about the benefit will be posted on the blog as details are confirmed.

Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting and we invite 4-H members from all the Buncombe County Clubs to attend our Next County Council meeting on Thursday, May 3rd at the Buncombe County Extension office.
