Congratulations to all who have a good start on the new 4-H year! Most youth members have selected the project/subject areas they want to concentrate on learning more about this year in 4-H. The next step is to pick out some learning goals and write them down! i.e. in a 4-H Recordbook Project Plan page :-} Project leaders should be sure and review and provide guidance if necessary to focus on specific, achievable goals. The review also helps the leaders plan how to structure activities or facilitate individual learning progress in the coming year.

Clubs and groups should also be working together to narrow down the focus on group goals for the year - a community service project and/or a fundraising event and/or an event, activity, or field trip.

Does anyone have an individual goal you'd like to share? Is there a Club or Family Group that would be willing to share something you plan to accomplish? Draw a picture, take a photo, and/or send a couple of sentences to describe!

I hope you all enjoy time with family next week and have an opportunity to reflect on things you are thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Karen Robertson, WSU Extension Program Assistant

Calling all artists! Participate in this year's Doodle4Google contest. Each doodle must include the letters G-O-O-G-L-E and address the prompt "What I see for the future..." Deadline to enter is December 2.…

What does the future look like? Are cities built in the clouds? Is it a place where everyone gets along - even cats and dogs? Or maybe a world where nobody ever gets sick? With the Google homepage as their canvas, young artists are invited to reach into their imagination and share what they see for the future. The winner’s artwork will be featured on the Google homepage.

Our 4-H School Gardens in Burundi, Africa need a reliable water source! For our 2016 Global Giving year-end campaign, we are raising $2,500 to purchase, install and maintain 4 water catchment systems for our 4-H Sister School gardens. 
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has generously donated $500,000 in matching funds to support the first day of the year-end campaign on #GivingTuesday. All donations received on #GivingTuesday (Nov. 29th) will be matched at 50% until the first $1 million is raised! In addition to this huge matching opportunity, all new recurring donations made from #GivingTuesday through December 31st will be matched at 200% up to $100, after the fourth monthly donation. The campaign begins on Tuesday, November 29th at 12:01 am EST (or 9 pm Monday night for Pacific time zone). Donate
We are IN LOVE with the new animal record book covers from the 4-H Mall. Starting your animal project? Don't miss these!
