EBR Canned Food Drive

Leaders, if you are participating in this year’s EBR Parish Canned Food Drive please remember to encourage your members to bring in as many canned goods possible to this month’s club meeting. We would also like to remind you to make arrangements with your agent for pick up the week of November 18th-22nd. This is a simple way for our 4-H’ers to give back to the community and a great chance as fulfilling one of Louisiana’s three mission mandates – Citizenship.

4th-6th Grade Leaders

If your 4-H’er has missed their school club meeting they are invited to catch up on all things 4-H at this month’s EBR Community Club meeting on Monday, November 11, 2013 at the EBR Parish Office at 6:30 pm. This is an opportunity for them to receive the month’s Clovertalk, learn about upcoming events, and meet other 4-H’ers from around the parish.
