Help wanted! 4-H members and friends needed to eat pizza and stuff envelopes.

Christmas Break doesn't have to be boring! Join us on Thursday, December 27, or Friday, December 28, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the new Extension Foundation Meeting Room located behind Pasta House in Union (next door to Franklin County Chiropractic, for the annual Extension Council Ballot Stuffing. You are welcome to help both days ifyou want. Help us stuff envelopes, and stuff yourself with pizza provided for lunch. Snacks and soda will also be provided. All 4-H members age 8 and older, parents, leaders, and 4-H Alumni are welcome! And you can even bring a friend who isn't a 4-H member.

Each kid that helps stuff envelopes will have a chance to win a $25.00 cash card (help both days, you have two chances.)

Most of all, you will be helping the Extension Council. What a great way to show how much you appreciate their support of our 4-H program. So, come join us, have fun, eat pizza, and leave with a great community service listing for your County 4-H Report Form or to meet school requirements.

For those of you who will need to pick up your kids early, you might note that we usually eat lunch about 1:00. We wouldn't want them to work all morning and then miss out on the pizza..
