Fremont County Extension

4-H Council
April 1, 2015
7:00 PM at the 4-H Building
Don’t miss this important meeting! 
Trooper Alisha Danko of the Colorado State Patrol will be our special guest. 

Her topic: Distracted Driving—not just cell phones & texting! Teen drivers, busy parents, bad weather, crazy traffic, proms, graduation and those tourists who don’t know where they are going!  We want our Fremont County 4-H family to be safe!  This will be a casual, interactive session with take-home information, time for questions and prizes!  Please come and bring a friend!  Parents, club leaders, 4-H members & friends:  If you only attend one meeting of 4-H Council this year, make it this one!

Cooking With Verla

Do you have a child who is interested in the Foods project?  Verla will be leading first and second year Foods projects if there is enough interest.  Classes will be during the week, after school, at the 4-H Building.  More information later, but if you are interested, get them enrolled!

We have 4-H hoodies for sale in the Extension Office.  We currently have them in forest green, chocolate brown, dark heather (gray), and antique cherry (red).  We can get other sizes and colors.  Children’s and adult sizes are $20 each and 2XL are $23.  Zip ups are a little more; $24 for regular sizes and $27 for 2XL.  Stop by to see them, try them on, and take one home or place your order!  Show your pride in Fremont County 4-H!
