There seems to be a LOT of events & activities this weekend!
Some reminders of just a few of the May 21st events that might be of interest to 4-H folks: 

4-H Pet Rabbit & Cavy Show - in conjunction with IERBA  Davenport

Wheatland Jackpot Show - Ritzville (Nutritional Clinic may be Friday night)

Memorial Service for Jodi Piper  Davenport 

Budwieser Hitch in Spokane 

Wilbur Wild Goose Days - Parade & More (Facebook Post)

Sheep Producers Field Day 

Which reminds me - how are you doing keeping up with your "Calendar" for your 4-H Record Book? Remember, in Lincoln and (East) Adams Counties, we encourage you to list ALL of your activities (not just 4-H). Use as a planning calendar, checking off the activities afterwards if you attended. If you are using a computer or mobile device app to keep track - when you print off for 4-H Record Book competition or review by your leader at the end of the year - you can always hi-light or indicate 4-H activities in some way.

Have a great week!

No endorsement of the named events is intended, nor is criticism implied of similar events not mentioned. There are many other events like those above that may provide valuable experiences for 4-H youth & volunteers.

Fair season is just around the corner, so our friends at the 4-H Mall curated a list of the best 4-H fair items and made them all 20% off through May 31st!

The Make It With Wool Contest has been promoting the versatility, beauty and wearability of wool since 1947! Contestants of all ages, from pre-teens through adults, sew, knit, crochet, weave or felt wool garments, which are judged on quality and presentation. In Washington, contests are held at six district locations throughout the state in October. The winners advance to the Washington state competition, and those winners advance to the national contest!  Make It With Wool Contest listings and information:

Hall of Fame Nominations Due June 1st
It is time once again to start thinking about submitting Washington State 4-H Hall of Fame nominations!

Each year at the WA State 4-H Forum in October, we recognize and induct additional members into the Washington State 4-H Hall of Fame.  Anyone who has made a significant contribution to the development of 4-H or 4-H’ers in Washington State is eligible to be nominated for this honor.
