It's time to kick off another great year 
in Sevier County 4-H!

Some things you can do to celebrate:
-Take time to thank the people who help make your 4-H experience possible.  
A popular thing to do is "Make and Take" where you make some cookies or a treat of some kind and deliver it to your club leader, people who sponsored your livestock project, a community sponsor, your favorite 4-H staff members (*wink, wink) - anyone who has helped you be a successful 4-Her!

-Show your 4-H pride.
On Wednesday, October 7th we want you to wear a 4-H shirt to school or work or wherever you are to show your 4-H pride.  Take a picture of you and your friends in your 4-H gear and tag us on Instagram using the hastags #sevier4hutah #utah4h #4h.  The picture with the most favorites will win a prize!
