Virtual Peel 4-H Dairy Club 2020

It’s time to start the dairy club and we are going VIRTUAL in 2020 to accommodate these uncertain times. Join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7:00pm for our first meeting on Zoom. 

This year will be very different than our traditional club, we will be completing club time on zoom with some at home ‘projects’ to complete. The hope is that we may be able to meet in person eventually however we are preparing for the possibility of this club being 100% online in 2020. The exciting part about this is we are able to utilize resources and guest speakers from across the globe that we would not be able to use in a regular year.  

Please note that a calf will NOT be mandatory for 2020 and we do not know if the 2020 club will include any time at a show. However, if you have a goal of attending the Royal in 2020 if it is able to occur you still must register a 4-H project with 4-H Ontario by June 1st. 

If you are interested in joining the Peel 4-H Dairy Club please email Lindsay to be added to the club list and receive the zoom link.   lindsaybebs_16@live.com 

Please note that if this is your first club for the 2020 Peel 4-H year then you will need to pay your 2020 4-H membership fee of $100.00.   Payment can be made by credit card on the 4-H Ontario website or cheque can be made payable to the "Peel 4-H Association" and mailed to Peel 4-H Association, 13597 Heritage Road, Caledon, ON   L7C 3E9.

Exchange Program 2020

Hello Peel 4-H members 12-17 years old
Have you ever dreamed of travelling across this amazing country we live in?

We have an opportunity to APPLY for up to ten Peel 4-H members to travel to another part of Canada (most likely west) 
Selected members will participate during TWO of the following time periods:
Tuesday, June 30 to Thursday, July 9, 2020 
Saturday, July 18 to Monday, July 27, 2020 
Tuesday, August 4 to Thursday, August 13, 2020 

The two time periods will be determined by 4-H Canada with consultation from ourselves and our twin group.
You MUST be available to participate during the entire time periods.

Please note that participants must be 12-17 years old at the time of the program. This is not their 4-H age. In order to participate in this program, youth participants must be: 12 years old BY June 30, 2020, and 18 years old AFTER August 13, 2020.

If our group is selected each member will be required to pay $150 upfront. In return, all travel expenses will be cover by the program. As well members will be expected to help in fundraising efforts to help differ costs of hosting our "twins" (it is customary that each hosting group covers expenses for their visiting "twins") We will try to minimize expenses and all participating families will have input and all stages of planning. However, if our costs are greater than our fundraising efforts all families will be asked to help cover the difference. The good news is we would be given $1500 upon being accepted to the program to start our fundraising efforts!!!! 

If there are more than ten interested members, the selection will be based on but NOT limited to 4-H experience, enthusiasm to participate in the exchange, possible phone interview and discretion of the chaperones.

Much more additional information can be found at https://4-h-canada.ca/clubtoclub this should answer any further questions.
