Lois Wymore

January is the beginning of 4-H season across the state and in Rio Blanco County, said Jennifer Anderson, 4-H Youth development agent.

The Meeker 4-H Council is hosting an enrollment party at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall. Clubs are encouraged to arrive early to set up displays and use this opportunity to meet potential new members. There will be games, fun and pizza served.

The Meeker Council will hold its first meeting during the enrollment party. The Rangely Council meeting is Jan. 10 at the Annex meeting room. At least two members of each club should be present. Officer elections will take place during those meetings.

New member orientations are scheduled for Jan. 24 in Meeker and Jan. 25 in Rangely. Both start at 5:15 p.m. Orientation is required for all new members. Leader orientation will follow at 7:15 p.m.

The enrollment deadline is Jan. 15 and enrollment forms can be pick-up at the Extension office or downloaded by going to the county Web page, http://www.co.rio-blanco.co.us. Members are reminded to finalize plans to attend the 2005 Leadership Development Conference from Feb. 5 to 7 in Denver. Conference registration is $60 per person, with the council sharing some of the cost. LDC is open to all 4-H members who are 14 years and older.

Anderson reminded all Meeker members about the annual Senior Citizen Appreciation Dinner on Feb. 13. Members should invite grandparents, senior neighbors and friends to the dinner, which starts at 5 p.m. All Meeker members are asked to help decorate, serve food and help with the clean-up. Invitations can be pick up at the Extension Office after Jan. 15.

Call Anderson at 878-4093 or 675-2417 with any questions.
