Food Drive – It is on November 18th. People stand in front of Safeway and hand out flyers about donating $10 to feed a family on Thanksgiving. There are 2 hour shifts and it’s good for community service in your record book.
Kids to Kids – It is on December 9th at Livermore high school. Organizations in the tri valley that serve underprivileged families are invited to this event. There are different booths with crafts, as well as Santa Claus. We voted to go as helpers for other booths instead of having our own booth. There is also a gift wrapping event on December 2nd.
Presentation Day – It’s on February 3rd at Forest Parks Elementary School in Fremont. It’s an event where you can get presentation credits, which are needed for a bronze star and more. The public speaking project is working on presentations for the event. You don’t have to be in Public Speaking to do a presentation. See the Presentation Manual on the State Web Site for all the different types of Presentations you can do.
4-H 101 – Akanksha: The all stars are putting on an event called 4-H 101in Livermore. There are family activities, workshops, refreshments and alumni panel. There will be record book presentations and information on the fair, camp and other summer activities. There is also karaoke, team building and balloon games. It is an event for new members who don’t know much about 4-H.
New Member Adoption – 4-H can be confusing for new members, and it would be nice if older members could take them under their wings. That way new members would have a friend to sit with at parties and potlucks as well as know what’s going on in the club. Older members please let us know if you would like to adopt a new member, or new member, let us know if you want to be adopted.
Science Matters – Cheryl: There is an event at the Bayer Corporation’s research and development building in Berkeley. Volunteers that want to lead a group of teens in a project are needed for the event. They will investigate and find issues in the community that can be solved with science. The solutions will be presented at various events. There is also an all-expenses paid trip to Maryland for winners. If you are interested in participating let Cheryl know.
Program: Cheryl Fraser, Alameda County 4-H representative, talked about helping the community club leader. Most clubs have 4 community club leaders, while ours only has one. We need some parents to step up and help Sharon with her duties as community club leader. Also, the primary members shared their craft projects. They made a treehouse, pumpkin cafe, and a ship.
