This year, in the Conejo Valley 4-H Club, our theme is 4-H In Motion! And we are sure moving quickly throughout the year from Ice Skating in January to building and racing Gutter Derby Cars in March and April.
But that's not all we are doing! Over the holiday season, we made seventeen Stockings overflowing with goodies for the soldiers, donated two huge bags of dog and cat supplies and toys to the Agoura Animal Shelter, cut and tied fourteen No-Sew Fleece Blankets for Project Linus and hand-created beautiful cards for Veterans and soldiers overseas.
With the 4-H year ending in just four months, we hope to have all our members complete a Record Book for at least club level. So to help with our goal, before each meeting we write down everything we did over the past month in our Record Book Row. This way we can help each other to add to our Record Books over the months instead of at the end of the year.
But for now, we are focusing on Presentation Day. At our February meeting, we had eight different Demonstrations in a Bag for the members to present as impromptu speeches. We had presentations from many projects including how to bathe a dog, how to make a bracelet, how to make cookies, and how to change a baby's diaper.
