Our long-time 4-H Electric friend, Jim Baker, has retired to sunny South Carolina, and we wish him well. Our new Electric partners are Doug Hornberger and Jordy Smith of South Central Indiana REMC. Doug and Jordy bring a wealth of electrical experience to our program! It is strongly recommended that 4-H Electric members attend the Electric Safety Night on May 17th to meet these gentlemen and to be amazed at the power of electricity in our lives. I look forward to seeing you there.
