Join us for our annual Pedal With Pete Bike Ride for Cerebral Palsy on Sunday, Sept. 20th at 2:00 PM.  Registration will be from 1:30-2:00 PM in the Exhibits Building on the fairgrounds.  This event is organized by the 4-H County Council to help raise monety for research for cerebral palsy.  They want to invite anyone who can ride a bike to pedal for a cure.  Particapants will be asked to ride on a designated route but will be able to ride as many of the miles as they would like.  The whole route is approximately 11 miles.  Refreshments will be served and prizes awarded after the completion of the ride.  A great way to social distance and get some exercise!

Palo Alto County Extension & Outreach has put together some fall 4-H workshops that are going to be offered to all 4-Hers in the county.  The workshops will have an "in-person" option and a "take & make" option.  Space will be limited for "in-person" option to allow for physical distancing.  All registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis with payment.  Registrations are due 2 weeks before each workshop so supplies can be ordered as needed.  Sign up now so you don't miss out on some fun projects!

4‑H programs empower young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world!  Iowa 4-H is calling all 4-H members, leaders, alumni, judges, and friends to create face masks for their community, including friends, neighbors, hospitals, and care centers. We thank everyone who helped us meet our initial goal of 10,000 masks. We invite you to help us reach our NEW goal of 25,000 masks!  Find out more here and don’t forget to record your donation here.
