Happy New Year!

Hope you enjoyed the holidays and our "winter wonderland" of weather! Even though this is the beginning of the "calendar year" we are already 4 months into the 4-H year! If you haven't yet set goals for what you want to accomplish in 4-H this year - NOW is a good time! Be as specific as you can and don't forget to write them down! For YOUTH members, that means in your 4-H Record Book :-}  As you work with your projects, be sure to note down what you are learning from your experiences! What worked great - what didn't go quite as planned?

For those of you with animals, hope you are finding the most efficient ways to help them cope with frigid temperatures! And, if you have an inside pocket, next to your body, carry your cell phone there! That way if you need it for an emergency, the battery might have enough "juice"!

THIS REVISED E-NEWS Includes CORRECTED Information on Super Saturday!

Safe Travels,
