Celebrate 4-H

To close up the 2012 year, this e-newsletter is all about celebrating 4-H accomplishments. One exciting point of celebration is the tremendous support that was garnered for 4-H Ontario during National 4-H Month; you'll find a story below that recaps some of the month's highlights. There is also some information about recent scholarship and bursary recipients, the launch of a new and improved participant agreement form and a couple upcoming opportunities for 4-H'rs. Together, we've had a great 2012. The staff team at 4-H Ontario would like to wish you Happy Holidays and all the best for 2013.
