National 4-H Week

We are always seeking new volnteers!  If you have recently signed up to be a volunteer, the next step is to attend a training with JaNaie, the 4-H Agent.   These can be 1:1 meetings or sometimes held with a group of other new volunteers.  If you have not met with or connected with the 4-H agent, please email her at to set up a meeting.  This way you can start getting involved and leading youth!


This Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to attend National 4-H congress in Atlanta Georgia. I qualified by winning first place in both the county and state career communications contest. During this event I met many different 4-H'ers from across the country (there were 37 states represented plus Porta Rico), attended many wonderful workshops, toured some of the largest attractions in Atlanta including the aquarium and the Coca Cola factory, and got the honor of listening to 3 different amazing keynote speakers. This experience was absolutely amazing and I would like to thank both the state foundation and our county ULC for assisting in sending the Montana delegation. I cannot express enough how amazing this trip was and I highly encourage any eligible 4-H member to participate in communications activities and maybe someday go to National Congress too!

Belgrade Pioneers Club

Happy New Year, Fellow 4-Her’s!

The Belgrade Pioneers’ meeting was held Thursday, December 2nd, 2021, at the WB Ranch. We held our committee meetings while we ate dinner. Our theme for dinner was Sloppy Joes. We had a brief business meeting, played a fun game, and had stations set up with different activities. They were Christmas-themed cupcake decorating, ornaments, and making cards for the Senior Centers. Everyone did a great job and we had so much fun! Our next meeting will be held on January 6th, 2022, at 6:00 pm at the Flooring Place location in Four Corners. If you have questions, please contact Shelly McPhee at (email) or 406.595.4774 (text).


Dab Nabids

Dag Nabids met on December 14th at the MSU Animal Bioscience building at 6:15pm. We talked about ways to raise money for our club and for Denton, Montana. In the past week Denton, a small town in mid montana, suffered major damage to the town from fires. Our president, Danika Johnson, discussed ways we and other 4H clubs could reach out and collect money for them. We also had a foreign exchange student named Marjona come and talk to us about her country Tajikistan. We learned a lot about the country and culture of Tajikistan. Finally we played a fun game of white elephant and enjoyed christmas karaoke.


The Dag Nabids will meet on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at the MSU Animal Bioscience building room 138 at 6:15pm

Shining Mountaineers

On December 6 2021 we had our monthly Shining Mountaineers meeting. We decided to plan some community service by picking up christmas trees on the 8th of January and going sledding after at the hill by the Dinosaur park, depending on snow. We ended the meeting by making a snowman with socks and rice. On December 17 we had our Christmas party. We started off by doing a Christmas kahoot and then we pinned the nose on Rudolph, then giant jenga, musical chairs, and cookie decorating. To finish the party we did a gift exchange. Our next meeting is at the Church of Nazarene on the 3rd of January 2022 at 6 pm.

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. Please plan to attend.  For more information, please contact Scott Francis – 581-6845.

We are going to have one Workshop in January: 1st & 2nd Year Project Orientation: January 31st @ 6:30pm IN-PERSON at Building #4 at the Fairgrounds. We ask that 1st and 2nd year members plus at least one parent / helper attend with them. February will bring multiple workshops to help you prepare for your project but we’re still working on dates and coordinating with our helpers.


If registered to be in the Swine Project, you will receive a “Welcome to the Project” email that includes this year’s Contracts (Market Livestock Contract and the Swine Contract), as well as the full workshop schedule, the committee contact information as well as some other project-specific information. Please note that ALL project-specific emails will come from this year, so keep an eye on your inbox as well as the Monthly Newsletters. We are happy to add additional family email addresses to the email list too, you just need to let us know.

Hope you all had a terrific holiday season with friends and family, and wishing you a healthy and Happy New Year!!


I'd like to give a shout out to Tracy Schmitt (mother to Cassandra, a Vet Science member) who has been a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine for 20 years.  Tracy helped us have a super fun and educational hands-on meeting in which members gave a rabbit and two dogs a full body check-up including taking vitals with the use of a stethoscope along with learning additional treatment tips, tricks, and facts.  Looking forward to working with Tracy as she's offered to volunteer with me for the remainder of the 4-H year.  Woohoo!!  A big 'Thank You' to Harper for bringing in her rabbit and to Cassandra for her dogs!


Reminder: Meeting tonight January 4th from 6-7pm at the Gallatin County Extension office located at 903 North Black Avenue. We'll be in the smaller conference room - come through the door on the north of the building as usual and walk through our normal conference room to get to the smaller one.
