4-H 4-MILE HUSTLE: Please be thinking of potential sponsors for our event! We can’t have such an awesome event without financial support from local businesses and organizations. We’ll have sponsorship forms for you on Monday so that you can go out and recruit sponsors.

We also will have race flyers for you on Monday. We need you to recruit participants! Share them wherever you can! Can you put some out at your church or your school? Would a business of which you are a customer let you put a few there? Also, online registration is open at www.thtiming.com. Spread that link around via social media!!

KIDS FUN RUN COMMITTEE: Please plan to stick around for a few minutes after the regular business meeting adjourns. We need to work out our activities and details to provide a super fun time for our little participants!

PRESENTATION AT MAY MEETING: Joan will be presenting a program for you on Monday on being smart with social media. Think B4 U Tweet!

INDIANA BEACH DAY & MADAM CARROLL CRUISE: Save the date of Monday, June 13th for a super awesome field trip with the LaPorte Co. Jr. Leaders! We will spend the day at Indiana Beach and the evening on a big boat where there will be dancing, or visiting, or just sitting and enjoy the lake!! Registration info and forms will be available on Monday.
