County Congress at the County Extension Office
Registration for the next year will take place in the morning, followed by a review the purpose of 4-H. Then there will be a talk on the club offices followed by individual club meetings to hold elections. Jean Rogalsky will install officers in a special 4-H ceremony. There will be officer workshops for newly elected officers to learn what their jobs entail and workshops for the general members on fund-raising and volunteering. Lunch and a t-shirt are included in the $10 fee.
Apple and Pecan Sales
** One bushel is a very large box of "a lot" of apples with is approx 42lbs. (Which is $1.27 a pound. You can't find that in the grocery store!!). Pecans come in one pound bags and are VERY yummy.**
Apple Ordering Online
The 4H foundation website www.pc4hfoundation.org has all the information. The online order form is the same as the printed forms you have. Although there is an instruction page online with the form(s) please instruct your customers to enter our club name in the space provided so that our club will get the credit and also we will be able to see your customer's name when we are provided with the order list for our club after all orders are taken.
As far as the order numbers are concerned; if there is a number already printed on the form the office will use that number. However, if there is no order number given, they will assign an order number when the order is processed and all order numbers will be printed on the reports so that we can keep track of it also.
You do not have to have the duplicate forms to order. In addition to being able to enter and pay orders on line, you will be able to print either of our order forms and provide it to your customer or you can direct them to our web site for them to either enter the order on-line or print the order form and mail it in or give it to you.

A day to make our presence known at our State Capitol!
Congratulations to all of you who won blue ribbons at County Events! Those invited to District Events will have received a letter from the 4-H office with details. Please email your talk to Liz for comments because you need to have your revisions completed immediately so you have time to practice so that you will not be reading from your note cards.
Pinellas County 4-H Awards Banquet
Held at the extension office every August. It's a potluck, so make sure to bring something to share. RSVP to Jean and tell her what you're going to bring.
Some partial scholarships from the Pinellas County 4-H Foundation will be available to those who go to District Events, amount depending on number going, etc. Of course, winning at District Events means free camp! We will also review our club finances and try to offer scholarships to those who have been active in fund-raising and volunteering. We need to keep enough money in our account to make deposits for our next dog show though.
Registration is limited on a first-come basis. This is a weekend camp for you and your dog. You need to turn in a participation form as well as a registration form. A limited number of $25 Scholarships are available from the Pinellas County 4-H Foundation; to apply for one you will need to fill out a Clover Award form as completely as possible since the year is not finished, and write a letter requesting a scholarship. The Clover Award applications are on the Forms page; make sure you get the one for your age group.
