Senior 4-H members are invited to take part in Fall Forum at Rock Eagle the weekend of December 11-12, hosted by the State Board of Directors. The cost is $100 and this will cover three meals, lodging and the activities for the weekend. Senior 4-H members may also apply to lead a workshop, community service activity, recreation, or display an exhibit which would be great sharing material for your DPA portfolio. Teen leader applications are due by Wednesday, November 3. Registration fees are due by Friday, November 19. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet new people and have fun at the same time.
