The “So You’ve Inherited a Farm, Now What?” Seminar will be held in Scribner at the new Community Center on 530 Main Street on Monday, November 20 from 1:30 – 4:00 pm. Stakeholders that own farmland will want to attend the seminar to get valuable information about selling versus leasing, short and long-term management, lease agreements, legal considerations, and family communication. Growers are also encouraged to share this opportunity with their new landlords to increase their farmland ownership literacy. The seminar is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is requested by Friday, November 17.

Diamond Clover - Due November 1, 2017

Throughout the 4-H year we have taken a multitude of pictures during 4-H Workshops and other events. There have been several requests for copies of the pictures, so we thought we would make them available to everyone. If you find a good one of your child that you want to download, please feel free. You may also use some of these pictures as you finish up your Career Porfolios.

We will try to maintain this photo link throughout the year so that you too may enjoy seeing what fun your kids are having at 4-H events.
