We will be holding an Officers Training via Zoom on Wednesday, November 11 from 2-3 p.m. We will be learning about the importance of the different officer roles and will play Officers Jeopardy. There will be prizes. The prizes will be sent out after the training. Please let us know if you plan to attend and we will send you the Zoom invite.

Vicki is also willing to do a virtual training for one of your online club meetings. Please contact Vicki to arrange for this at venloe@illinois.edu.

 
 
Achievement Awards 2020
 
 

The Bond County Achievement Awards program will look much different this year. The current plan is to have a "drive thru" type awards pick-up with the announcements of all participants/winners being on facebook live, Zoom, and possibly even WGEL. More information will follow as we get closer to the date. The awards ceremony is planned for Sunday, December 6 at the new office location in Pocahontas.

 
 
Remote Work Continues for Illinois Extension Staff
 
 

Due to rising COVID-19 numbers in some of our communities, Illinois Extension staff in Bond, Clinton, Jefferson, Marion and Washington counties will continue to work from home through November 30 at least. Some staff may continue to work remote longer, due to school schedules or personal health concerns. Offices will not be open to the public until after December 1 and at that point we ask that clients make an appointment in advance to meet with staff, or give a quick call to let us know you are coming by to pick up/drop off materials.

Plans could change, depending on public health reocommendations.  We can't express our thanks enough for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new and ever evolving situation. If you have questions about 4-H, please don't hesitate to reach out to your 4-H program coordinator. Vicki will be happy to help in any way possible. 

 
 
Unit 23 Teen Ambassador Club
 
 

If you are a 4-H teen that has an interest in leadership, we have an opportunity for you. Unit 23 will be forming a Teen Ambassador Club. Three members from each county will be picked for a seat on this very important leadership team. Look for more information to come soon. Vicki will be sending out applications to those who qualify by the first week in November.

 
 
4-H Online 2.0
 
 

Most of you are aware that we are in the process of switching over to a new version of 4-H Online. Unfortunately, there have been some complications with the new software. They are working on it and hope to have it up and running smoothly very soon. For right now, please do not try to enroll for the current 4-H year. We will let everyone know when it is safe to go ahead and enroll. Thank you for your patience on this.
