Club Support - we are still a 4-H family!

What an ever-changing world we live in!

Due to no face-to-face Extension programming through the month of June, that has meant clubs have been unable to gather in their regular club meeting settings. That does not mean that the communication needs to stop though! There are tools out there for clubs to use to communicate through technology. Families are familiar with Zoom as it is being used for learning since schools are have been closed. Why not try this with your 4-H club? Make it a short meeting to check- in to see how everyone is doing, talk any club business; you can even add a activity like Virtual Bingo or a Scavenger hunt through the house! We feel that it is important to keep as much normal in the 4-H program as possible, just in different ways.

Club leaders- I would like you to have one check in with your clubs by June 1st. If you need help setting up a Zoom meeting or would like other suggestions on how to keep the club communication flowing, contact Suzanne.
