4-H Cloverbuds Celebrate with Success!
by Ranae Harris, Sublette County 4-H Cloverbuds
June 15, 2011

The Sublette County 4-H Cloverbuds held their awards night and pizza party June 8th. About 50 people attended the ceremony, along with Commissioner Joel Bousman and 4-H Agent Robin Schamber, the turnout was a huge success! Everyone began with pizza, chips and drinks and viewed a slide show of the activities for the year. Awards were given out to each member for their unique participation and skills acquired during the 4-H year.

Throughout the year, members have been active in community service projects, learned about the Character Counts program, the 4-H Portfolio and also learned about the projects they can participate in 4-H. This year, the club had amazing helpful parents who jumped in and helped whenever possible, even to the end of the program cleaning tables and taking out trash to help the volunteer. So many thanks go to each parent who stepped up, helped, brought snacks and always offered a hand when needed!

The 4-H year begins October 1. For youth to participate in the Cloverbud program, they need to be in Kindergarten and no older than 8 years old before January 1st. Next year there will be smaller groups for youth to participate in and the potential of more classes for the members throughout the year.

Volunteers are always encouraged to participate in the 4-H program, which involves a background check and evening training course. If you would like to help with Cloverbuds or the 4-H program or have your child participate, please contact the Extension Office for the upcoming 4-H year starting October 1!
