If you are reading this - YAY!
Unfortunately, not all 4-H households are receiving!

PLEASE check with OTHER people in your 4-H Club/Group! If they are not getting this E-News, ask them to look in their junk/spam folder. If they STILL can't find, have them contact me at ASAP!

This E-News may be the only way that some important 4-H information is communicated! So it's important that each household with a currently enrolled 4-H youth member or adult volunteer receives a copy. If you know that some people in your club do NOT have email, please make sure that someone in shares appropriate 4-H information with them! THANK YOU!

We are making headway in our 4-H enrollments! TWENTY-SIX more days till the deadline for returning members and volunteers to submit their enrollments to the 4hOnline system in order for clubs and family 4-H groups to be officially re-instated for the new 4-H year! We also would like as many NEW members enrolled as possible by that date!

Note: The WSU Extension Office will be closed on Friday, November 11th in observance of Veterans Day.

Have a great week!

Enrollment Help Sheets

4-H Online Enrollment Help Sheets:
Note: Lincoln-East Adams Residents - Please contact your club leader and/or Karen  (509.659.3209) at the Extension Office if you have ANY questions! 

If ANY member of your household has participated in ANY 4-H sponsored activtiy in ANY WA State County in the last 3 years, there may already be a "Family Profile" for your household in the system! It is very important to avoid creating duplicate "Family" and "Individual" Profiles. If not sure, check with the Extension Office to see which email is on file for your "primary family email."  If the email you used previously is no longer "good" - contact Karen to change it before logging in.
The Davenport Afterschool Program for K - 5th grade students is still accepting pre-registrations for youth!
