Greetings from the ULC and Welcome to a new 4-H Year!

 

We are excited to start the 2021 – 2022 4-H year, working on old ideas and finding new avenues to explore.  We are also very excited to welcome the new ULC adult and youth representatives!

 

First of all, we would like to congratulate our FIVE National 4-H Congress Representatives, who will be representing Gallatin County and the state of Montana in Atlanta in November.  Way to go!  Second, we would like to thank all of you who promoted 4-H during National 4-H Week.  All of the displays sparked interest!

 

We are also hard at work.  We are working to revise old goals and set new goals for the 4-H program.  We are also expanding our committee groups and are always looking for project leaders and volunteers to join.  If you are interested, please contact one of the ULC members or the office.  We are working on a yearly calendar so that all of the dates are at your fingertips.  Finally, we are looking at new ways to fundraise and interact as a 4-H community.  Keep your eyes open for plans and ideas as they come down the pipe!

 

We are looking forward to a great year as we help “Make the Best Better”!

Over the past five years, Twisters has helped elevate the Gallatin County 4-H horse project, promoted 4-H, and motivated horse project members to continue in the project. Members of Twisters have improved their riding skills as a direct result of being on the team, and they have formed life-long friendships with their teammates. 

 

The team is established and has contacts and sponsors around the valley and the state. Team organization and expectations are already laid out and in place. Finding a place to practice has not been difficult. 

 

Gallatin Twisters has performed locally and around the state, competing at different competitions, and placing well!

 

Funds are available and fundraising has been very successful in the past. They are easy to support!

 

There is a stockpile of uniforms and costumes, flags, and tack. All of it belongs to Twisters. 

 

The team has a professionally-designed website that has been updated yearly: www.gallatintwisters.org. They also have a really awesome logo and an active Facebook page.

 

There is a coach who is planning to return for the 2021-22 season.

Thank You to our Sponsors

 

Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports is very fortunate to have the support of many individuals and conservation organizations.  We are very fortunate to be recipients of a Friends of NRA Grant for this shooting season of 2021 - 2022.  We will be able to purchase and obtain the needed targets, ammunition, and equipment to serve our programs.  Manhattan Wildlife Association and the Southwest Montana Chapter of SCI have been a tremendous supporter to 4-H Shooting Sports.  They embrace the opportunity to help with youth shooting and provide the venue to offer the various shooting disciplines.  Thank you to these sponsors.  Without their dedication to youth shooting, our shooting sports program could not do what we do for the members of Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports.


Volunteers needed:

Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports is in desperate need of adults to become certified leaders in the different disciplines that are offered in 4-H Shooting.  We are desperately in need of assistance in archery and shotgun.  In order for us to provide a safe and educational experience, we need your help.  Please consider becoming a leader.  More information on leader trainings will made available as it is received.

Greetings and Welcome to the Veterinary Science Project!

 

We will be kicking off the 4-H year with our first meeting on November 4th from 6-7pm at the 4-H Extension office located at the Fairgrounds.  Moving forward the typical monthly meeting day will be the first Tuesday of the month from 6-7pm at the 4-H Extension office.  

 

At our first meeting we’ll discuss what you’d like to learn this year and how in-depth our studies and fun should take us.  Through the year we'll look at animal body styles, systems, breeds and life stages; explore various animal basic needs and health/safety; explore biosecurity; identify the transfer of diseases between animals and humans; review what an animal health management plan may look like by developing accurate health records for our animals and pets;  we'll consider ethics and animal welfare; through a field trip(s) and/or guest speaker(s) we'll look at  the use of veterinary technology and procedures; and explore the many careers of animal and veterinary science type degrees.
