Thank you for your patience these past months.  We are happily back working in our offices again adhering to University of Maine and CDC guidelines.  Attached are 2 letters from our Dean, Dr. Hannah Carter. One addressing our members, families and volunteers and a second addressing our volunteers and how to get club life restarted.  Please take a few moments to read through this important information.

Dear 4-H friends,

I am glad to share that we have received permission to begin club meetings again!  We do have very specific protocols to work through and I am happy to walk you through each part of the process.  You will see many links, checklists, and videos in this newsletter that explain how a 4-H club can meet this fall.  Again, send me a quick email or message and I will assist you!  Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in this unusual season.

Meduxnekeag River Walk

Are you looking for an outdoor adventure?  Take a trip to Houlton, 49 North St., and walk the Meduxnekeag River Walk.  It is an easy three-mile loop and our 4-H staff team has created some science stations along the way.  This would be a fabulous trip for the whole family – you could pack a little picnic to eat at one of the river view stops!

afghan Virtual Exhibit Hall

Missing the Northern Maine Fair and the Exhibit Hall?  Our state 4-H team created five virtual exhibit halls with entries from 4-Hers all across Maine.  Two of our Aroostook county youth have exhibits in the 3D gallery!
