April is National Volunteer
Month. I just want to take
the time to say thank you to
all of the volunteers that
help out with the 4-H program (leaders, youth volunteers, shooting sports, livestock, camp, advisory council). We couldn’t have the
successful program we do
without all of your tireless
efforts and dedication to
the youth.
I will drop off a May newsletter.
Watch the paper for summer
camps and events to participate
in. Enjoy your summer!

4-H University
Lost Camp
If you are at least 13 years of age or older, now
is the time to start thinking about going to 4-H
University. It will be held the June 21-24, 2016.
It is a great opportunity to enter a contest.
There are many to choose from and you may win a
trip. There is also Clover College. We are on the
LSU campus so it’s a great way to see the college.
Lots of fun to be had. Think about going. I would
like to know by the end of April. Information will
be given out in April club meetings.
Hey Shooting Sports participants, if you are
interested in being an Ambassador for the
shooting sports program next year, you have
to go to 4-H University and interview for
the spot. This is new. Normally you have
to just fill out a paper. This is a great opportunity to see what happens at 4-H U.
You can either do Clover College or you may
choose one of the many contests.

This year’s Key Club winner is Tiona Harris. She has been involved
with 4-H for the past 7 years and
has been extremely active in the
program. She is currently president of Jr. Leaders, is serving on
