2nd Code Club Meeting


Thanks to all who joined us for the first official Code Club meeting last Friday.

Reminder, our next meeting is this Friday, December 19th from 2-3:30PM. Please bring $1 to contribute to the snack fund. It would also be in your best interest to bring a laptop if you have one because 4-H computers are limited. For this second meeting, we will be voting in club officers and two of our members will be presenting a tutorial.

Anyone ages 11 and up is welcome! We hope to see you there.

Join Us for an Hour (or more) of Code



Interested in learning how to code? 
If you have basic computer skills (such as typing and searching the internet) and if you are 11 or older, then 4-H welcomes you to come learn how to code. Adults and youth are both welcome! 

When is the code club?
December 12, 2014 from 2:00PM-4:30PM.

I'm interested. How do I get involved?

[If you are not able to join us in December, but would still like to join a code club, don't fret. We hope to start coding together at least once a month. We hope to see you there!]

Why code?

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Enrollment starts October 1st!


2014-2015 4-H Year begins October 1st!

The new year is just around the corner - so, what?

That means, that it is time to re-enroll in 4-H! 

On September 30th, all records will become "inactive" in our online enrollment system and in order to benefit from the great things we have planned for 2014-2015, all youth and adult volunteers need to re-enroll.

Please wait until after October 1st but then please sign up early!  If you take care of it now, you'll be covered by 4-H accident insurance from now through next September, AND we will be able to keep in contact with you and keep you in the loop on upcoming events.

All the enrollment and re-enrollment instructions can be found HERE.  We look forward to another great 4-H year with you!
