Local 4-H Clubs - The month of November for Cannon County is public speaking month. I believe that this is the best group of speeches that I have heard in a long time. I know how difficult it is to get up in front of a group and give a speech, but our young people continuously excel at this difficult task. Special thanks to our teachers, who encourage and support our 4-Hers to learn this difficult but necessary skill.
4-H Awards Banquet - Please remember that the annual 4-H awards banquet will be held on Tuesday, December 1st at the Woodbury Lions Club building beginning at 6:30 p.m. Invitations should be arriving to everyone involved in the near future. The program should last approximately one hour and will be followed by refreshments and fun. We look forward to seeing everyone on the 1st.
County Public Speaking Contest - Our County Public Speaking Contest will be held at Short Mountain Elementary School on Tuesday, December 8th with registration beginning at 5:30 and the contest beginning at 6:00 p.m. This contest will take the same format as the local or classroom contest, with each grade level giving their speech to others from the county in the same grade. Please remember that the rules for the county contest are the same as they were for the classroom contest, and that you can use the same speech or another if you desire. Everyone who participated at the classroom, or local contest is invited to participate and everyone who participates will receive an award.
Service Learning Project - Attention all 4-H Honor Club members: Please remember the Christmas Service learning activity which will take place at the Woodbury Nursing Center on Tuesday, December 15th. We will be making Christmas goodie bags for the residents and delivering them to the Center to spread some good holiday cheer. Anyone interested in helping with the activity will need to meet at the 4-H office at 4:30 to assemble the bags and join us at 6:30 to deliver the bags and visit with the residents.
