4-H Open House and Apple/Pecan Cook-Off November 5

Fall is officially here and 4-H’ers are beginning to think about their club booths for the 4-H Open House November 5. Every 4-H club is invited to set up a display to show off their club projects. Most clubs also have an activity to share or have items to sell to boost their club treasuries. So far we will have goats, chickens, Xtreme gingerhouse building, and the rocket creation and launch. The second half of the event is the Apple/Pecan Cook-Off. Bring in your finished product of a recipe that contains at least one apple or one cup of pecans. This event celebrates the success of the apple/pecan sale held each year by the Pinellas County 4-H Foundation.
Here is what you need to know:
To participate with a club display, leaders should contact Jean Rogalsky at jrogalsk@pinellascounty.org to register.
To hold a fundraiser, the club must submit a fundraising application. Sales need to be approved before the event.
To enter the cook-off, everyone must pre-register with Betty Lipe at blipe@tampabay.rr.com.
Forms and instructions will be e-mailed to club leaders or can be obtained from Betty Lipe.
The 4-H Open House and Apple/Pecan Cook-Off is open to the public. It takes place at the Pinellas County Extension Office at 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Come and see what 4-H has to offer. Doors open at 10:00 a.m.
