Ms Jean is Stepping Down as Club Organizational Leader

Hello Sci-Tech Engineer Members and Families,

It has been a great 5 years running the club. But now I must step down due to family and business demands. I sincerely hope that someone else steps up to take on this very important roles in the club. Note that I will still be around and be offering some projects as my schedule allows. I am always here to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability or direct you where to find the answer. Watch for emails for what will be happening next in Sci-Tech Engineers 4-H Club.

Yours Truly,
Ms Jean

Summer is COMING!

Hello Sci-Tech Engineers Members,
Summer is coming and we need to plan for our club field trip. Be sure to bring your ideas to our May 9th meeting.

I am not sure if we will be able to have our club day camp this year at my house due to the amount of clean up we still have to do to our property. As summer arrives and I see how much clean up we get accomplished, I will make a determination at that point in time. We may plan some other type of activity like maybe going to a local park for a club picnic.

Keep working on your projects. I know some of you have completed and evaluated projects done. WAY TO GO! If you need a project let me know. If you need help with a project be sure to talk to your project leader or you may always call me and I can see what we can do to help you out.

Any questions please feel free to email or call me.

Ms Jean

Happy New Year Sci-Tech Engineers Members

We are off to a great start for 2014! Enrollment is all wrapped up except for any new members we pick up going forward. Many of you have started projects in our club. Many of you have decided to also participate in the Shooting Sports Club. We have picked up a few more leaders which helps us out a lot when planning activities.

We are going to continue to work on the projects we have started until they are completed and evaluated. As you finish up a project you can add in another project as long as you are only working on 2 projects at the same time. New project offerings will be announced as we get closer to wrapping up the ones we currently have started.

Cloverbuds are going to be starting soon for the ages 5-7 crowd. Contact me or Ms Andrea if you are age 5-7 and want to join the Cloverbuds.
NOTE: 4-H age applies which means you must be one of these ages by January 1st of the current year to participate. Ages 8 to 18 are regular 4-H members.

Do not worry if the snow causes us to cancel any meetings. We will make sure that we cover what needs covered in emails or we will plan a reschedule of a meeting. It will not snow forever. :-) Please keep an eye on email for any updates especially if the weather does not play nice on a meeting night. Please promptly reply to emails so we know everyone got the message if schedules change.

Our next whole club meeting is January 23 at 6:30 at Family Of God Community Church, 147 1st Avenue, Red Lion. We will be having a guest speaker and activity, so hope you all can attend. It would be great if a few of you could step up to provide some light, healthy refreshments and drinks. Pop me an email.

I will be posting and sending out a tentative calendar for 2014 soon. Any questions about anything 4-H related please pop me an email or phone call.

Looking forward to a wonderful 2014!
Ms. Jean
