This is a one hour learning event in October where 4-H members and leaders rotate between the office positions of president/vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and parliamentarian.
We sponsor this November event by providing soft serve ice cream for all of the attendees through the Dairy Bar, help set up with Extension, announce & give awards, and do a special presentation each year!
Each year in March the Larimer County 4-H Foundation hosts a fundraiser called the Carnival with raffle prizes, a basket auction, and invites clubs to run fun game/prize booths! We participate at this event by drawing and announcing all of the door prizes.
Project/Livestock Field Day:
Some years in February we will help out with Project/Livestock Field Day and run the Dairy Bar to provide refreshments to the participents.
We help District II with Junior Jam in March by sending representatives to be counselors, teaching our own workshop, and providing food during lunch with our Dairy Bar!
Recreation and Dance Night:
A new event for 2020 that focuses on 4-H community by providing an opportunity to meet other 4-H'ers throughout the county to play fun games, listen to great music, and dance the night away!
There has been many years we have not hosted a leadership workshop, however, our intention when we do workshops like this, is to give an overview of the leadership/citizenship project and to teach kids how to be passionate, courageous, decisive, clear minded, and humble leaders to impact their community and 4-H club!
The Dairy Bar:
During the Larimer County Fair, we host a concession stand called the Dairy Bar, where we provide food, snacks, refreshments, and of course our famous soft serve ice cream! Read the Dairy Bar Handbook found here for lots of information.
