Written by Tony Staubach, Extension Educator 4-H Youth Development

It is my honor and privilege to make an exciting announcement. After several months of hard work we have selected the first nine members of our Hamilton County 4-H Advisory Committee. This group will advise OSU Extension in managing Hamilton County 4-H Youth Development. This group has agreed to take on the task of prioritizing, developing resources and spreading the message of 4-H.

It is with great excitement that I introduce you to:
Heather Alden, Rachel Earich, Lindsay Horlander, Hope Johnson, Kris Mason, Nancy Nally, Lou Schindler, Bruce Tumlin, Anna Tumlin.

These nine exceptional leaders will serve each for three years on this new advisory committee with an option to carry on for up to three terms.

The first task on their docket is to establish a cooperative vision and strategic plan for Hamilton County 4-H. Once that task is completed, they will begin working on developing the programs and events necessary to carry out the shared vision.

In addition, this group will be responsible for raising and managing funds for Hamilton County 4-H in cooperation with The Ohio State University and the Extension Educator, 4-H Youth Development.

Please join me in thanking these individuals for taking on this task and congratulate them on their selection to this powerful team.

Thanks,
Tony Staubach

Presented by the Hamilton County Community Fair Association at Miami Whitewater United Methodist Church the event was hosted by OSU Extension Educator, 4-H Youth Development, Tony Staubach. Dinner was donated by the Hamilton County 4-H families. The highlight of the meal was the farm fresh, locally sourced chicken by the Roell and Tumlin families. Together they cared for 70+ chicks that 4-H members hatched at the Hamilton County Community Fair and the Harvest Home Fair. Read More.

Is there anything more powerful than looking in the mirror and telling yourself that you are worthy. At this time of the year when the sun shines a little less brightly, when the fluctuating weather patterns can wear on your patience, take a moment to breathe and tell yourself you are worthy. Worthy of love, worthy of affection and worthy of good things to come. Enroll or Volunteer for 4-H today. https://hamilton.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development

Chick Quest:
It’s that time of the year. Classroom Teachers can sign up for ChickQuest. This year we are asking for a $25 donation (or whatever you can afford) to support the program payable by cash, Credit Card or Check to OSU Extension, Hamilton County. The basic kit includes, eggs, incubator, teacher manual, a cardboard brooder box, and a light. Workbooks for students cost $5 each or $50 for 25 books.

Eggs will go out the first Wednesday of each month beginning in February and continuing through April.

Donate: Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Nancy and Colonel David Bull, we can enhance the impact of the 4-H program for generations of youth to come through the establishment of an endowment to be used exclusively for 4-H programming in Hamilton County. Nancy and David Bull have a deep sense of the community of philanthropy. They would like to leverage their gift of $50,000, half the amount needed to fund the $100,000 endowment, as a challenge gift to other donors who are interested in establishing support of Hamilton County 4-H. Their gift will match dollar-for- dollar to the first $50,000 raised to establish the Hamilton County 4-H Endowment. To donate click here.

Special Thanks:
-The Hamilton County Commissioners and Hamilton County for their continued support of Hamilton County 4-H and OSU Extension, Hamilton County.

-The Hamilton County Community Fair Association for presenting this year’s Hamilton County 4-H Awards Banquet.

-The Ohio 4-H Foundation for funding our soon to be announced Leaders in Training Program.
