Wyoming County 4-H
February 12, 2021
During COVID-19 we want to make sure we
are keeping all of our 4-H families up to date as much as we possibly can! The
entire Wyoming county 4-H staff is here for anything you and your families may
need during this time so please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us with
4-H Club Meeting & Activity
Due to a high
rate of COVID-19 cases and reduced healthcare capacities across the region, CCE
Wyoming is continuing our suspension of all in-person group programming through
the end of February. We know that this is disappointing news, and while we’re
dismayed to extend our pause of in-person programming, we hope to ensure
everyone’s health and safety for the weeks ahead. And while in-person
programming may be on hold, our Ag and 4-H teams will continue to provide
exciting virtual and hybrid at-home programming throughout the winter—as well
as one-on-one guidance and support in the weeks ahead. CCE Wyoming will revisit its in-person group
programming suspension in late February. Please be sure to check 4-H News, Farm
& Homestead, and our social media streams for updates and announcements.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding. Please don’t hesitate to
contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for virtual
- Due to the uncertainty
pertaining to in person events, the 4-H staff has decided to move public
presentations to a completely virtual event. Emails to all
registered participants were sent out this week with the links for your zoom
meeting, and meeting date and time. If you did not receive an email, have
scheduling or presentation questions please email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although this virtual option is not
ideal, public speaking skills utilizing an online platform is more important
now more than ever. Youth may utilize PowerPoint, other presentation software,
and posters and other props like years past. We hope families still take
advantage of this opportunity! Email Sarah at email@example.com for any questions.
- Cookie sale began this week!!
We encourage ALL of our 4-H membership to participate. Not
only can you gain gift card incentives based off the number of cases you sell,
but this is the only fundraiser we ask of our membership all year, and without
it our programming would look much different. If you have any questions, please
feel free to reach out to any of the 4-H staff. You can find links for the
incentive sheets, cash/checks sheet, cookie chair information, and letter
below. If you need an extra order form, please email the 4-H staff.
- When you turn in your order form to your
self-selected cookie chair, you will need to deliver your order form (which we
will return to you upon cookie delivery, although we recommend you make a
copy!), the green financial sheet, orange incentive sheet and all of you funds.
Reminder that all checks need to be made out to ‘Wyoming County 4-H Leaders
Association.’ Please communicate ahead of time with your chosen cookie chair to
schedule a time to deliver your order.
- Our next virtual meeting is this coming Monday, February 15th
at 7pm. You need to register in advance for this meeting:

- An email was sent yesterday to all of the registered meat animal
beef and dairy beef participants who provided a preferred email on their
registration sheet. If you did not receive this, send Holly an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the

details quickly with project members for the year in addition to mailings.
