Good Morning Club Managers,

I wanted to update you on our County 4H Fashion Extravaganza scheduled for Monday, April 9. Willie Arnwine was scheduled to meet with each club in the Fall with the attached flyer where he discussed the upcoming county workshop and fun day. I hope that your club has some interested youth that would like to attend, as we are looking forward to a fun-filled day. We chose Monday, April 9 due to most of the schools having that as a holiday or a bad-weather potential student holiday. I have attached the flyer that Willie brought to your club and that was posted on the county blogsites.

Please note that youth can still enter the Fashion Contest, even if they cannot make the all-day workshop. I do need to know no later than APRIL 9, 5 PM if they plan to participate.
