Busy month for 4-H

Leadership Conference of Regional Teens (LCORT) was last month at Wonder Valley Ranch in Sanger and it is for kids age 12-14. LCORT had several sessions on different topics. Some of the topics this year were how to dress and act on an interview, how to think positively, how to introduce a speaker, and how to work well in groups.

These sessions were both educational and fun. The facilities at the event are wonderful and all together a beautiful place. The staff were nice and the food was good and it was a very educational experience.

Small animal expo was on Feb. 21. It’s an event where you can show small animals and you can try to medal. Congratulations to our Coarsegold 4-H dog obedience group. They all medaled and passed level one.

Our leader is Pat Strimling and if you’d like to join our club, you can call her at (559) 683-5149. Anyone can join. You don’t have to be a student at Coarsegold School to be a member of Coarsegold 4-H. You can live anywhere in Madera County as long as you can come to our meetings.
