  • Household Paper Products: trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, napkins, etc. Household Cleaning Supplies: disinfectant spray, Windex, dish soap, etc.
  • Infant Wipes & Diapers (all sizes needed)
  • Infant OTC Tylenol, saline, diaper cream, etc

End-of-Year Holiday Party

Please join us next Tuesday, December 9, at Mr. Jesse's for a holiday dinner. We'll meet at 5:30. We'd like for everyone to bring a side dish or dessert.

Tuesday's Meeting

First meeting of the 4-H year will be this Tuesday. Several important things we will be doing at this meeting:

Elections - we will be electing president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, recreation coordinator, and snack coordinator. Everyone is invited to participate in these leadership activities.

Registration - Florida 4-H has gone to an on-line registration system. We will be registering during the meeting on Ms. Emily's laptops. Please bring your doctor's info and insurance info with you. It will be needed to fill out the emergency and health sections of the forms.

Projects & Service Ideas - we will be discussing projects we will be doing throughout the year. We will also be brainstorming service ideas for our club.

Don't forget to bring a friend or two!

New Club Web Page

We've got a new Web page for our club! It has several cool features - an interactive calendar, a place to put our agendas and club info, and project stuff. Check it out at

If you have any ideas to add to it, just let Ms. Emily know.
