Be sure and ask others in your 4-H group if they got this E-News! If not -please tell them to look in their spam, junk, or promotions folder! If they still don't find, and they are enrolled in Lincoln or (East) Adams Co. 4-H, have them contact me!

The weather this January has proved to be extremely challenging on many levels: driving, walking, animal care, and for meeting, event, school, and work schedules! Lots of cancellations - and lots to catch up on in the coming months!

“But if everything was always smooth and perfect, you'd get too used to that, you know? You have to have a little bit of disorganization now and then. Otherwise, you'll never really enjoy it when things go right.” 
 Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Have a great week!

4-H Record Keeping

by Randy Williams,
Lincoln/East Adams 4-H Program Coordinator

January 27, 2017
There are many reasons why kids decide to join 4-H. One of the most popular is the love of farm animals. Having the opportunity to care, feed and manage an animal brings a lot of satisfaction to our daily lives. We realize that the well-being of our project depends upon US and for most of us that is a great feeling. Some of you enjoy showing your animals at Jackpots, County Fairs and Regional Livestock Shows. Those who take this activity real serious spend hours training, clipping and preparing. This is your MOST favorite part of raising an animal! I would be willing to bet, however, that one of your LEAST favorite responsibilities is KEEPING RECORDS!
