It’s Time to Spring


Mother Nature continues to grant us gorgeous days to enjoy outside! I’m just as much ready for steady temperature days, the winds to vanish and the spring weather to stick around as many of you are as well! This time of year brings a new sense of happiness and refreshing feeling! What’s not to love about seeing baby animals running and playing, flowers blooming, green grass growing and children frolicking outside! In just a few short days we will Spring forward with time. Losing sleep is never a favorite of mine!

With Spring near by, it’s time to start springing forward with your 4-H projects and be thinking of what’s next around the corner….FAIR!!!

If you haven’t started springing forward, here are a few tasks you could get started on:

  • Review Pin applications, start filling them out and see what else you need to do to reach that pin. There are some changes that will take place – however, there will be no major changes.
  • Start working on your KAP now. It’s easier to do then wait until the last minute! Don’t forget to take pictures! Intermediate KAP’s will use the same form as the Senior KAP. They are basically the same form other than the Senior KAP is much more user friendly!
  • Start working on projects that take time to complete for Butler County Fair (arts & crafts, leather, drawing, crochet, pictures, etc.)
  • Spend time with your livestock project teaching them to walk/lead, set-up, etc.

It’s never too early to get started!
