Washington County 4-H Bucket-Bottle project meeting set
Jan. 19, 2022 1:12 pm
Washington County 4-H’ers involved in the bucket bottle project are invited to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at the Washington County Extension Office. This department project meeting is open to all members and their families who have questions about how to get started or who are ready to learn more in advancing their project.
Department superintendents will discuss animal selection, health, records, and fair requirements. Bucket Bottle calf family mentors will be available to connect with and ask questions as well.
Record books and interviews are an important part of this project area and 4-H department superintendents will review those with samples. Past participants, please bring old workbooks and score sheets if you have them as samples to learn from. Workbooks will be available for purchase as well.
Junior members (4th-6th grade) plan to attend from 6-7 p.m. and intermediate/senior members plan to attend from 7-8 p.m. Members earn participation points by attending these project meetings that will go towards their overall score at the county fair. An identical meeting will be held on April 1 for any who are not able to attend in February.
4-H is for youth who want to learn how to properly care for the environment, their communities and each other. For more information on 4-H or the bucket bottle calf project area, contact the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811.
