Dear Monterey County 4-H members,
2013 is the Centennial year for the California 4-H program! We are looking to rebuild our local alumni database to include the outstanding 4-H members that go back as far as the 1930s.
We are committed to collecting basic alumni information and old photographs to showcase at 4-H events, for displays by members and to work with in Leadership Projects. Please share this alumni form click here with any former member or adult volunteer you may know. Ask them to follow the instructions on the form and return by U.S. mail or by email. They will not be asked for money or donations! The goal is to find 100 alumni.
We really need old 4-H photos for these archives! They can be scanned and emailed OR the photos can be taken to the 4-H county office and they will scan them - just call to make sure the Program Representative is there to help.
You can also provide information on a deceased member – fill out the form and use their names and years they were in a local club.
Collecting stories will be another feature in which current 4-H members can connect with alumni. Make sure the person you are asking to fill out the form marks the interview box on the form.
Lastly, we are pleased to share with you how current 4-her’s across the state are celebrating the centennial by using their head, heart, hands and health to create positive impacts in their communities. You can view profiles and stories of these amazing projects on the website http://ca4hfoundation.org/
Thank you for joining our 4-H California Centennial celebration!
Monterey County 4-H Program Representative
