Thank you to everyone for your support at our 1st Annual Foundation Feast on November 12th. We have around 50 attendees who got to witness the amazing things 4-H is doing in our state.
It was wonderful to have two great youth speakers attend our event to let us know how 4-H has impacted their lives. Nosa Akol from Broome Co. was the 2015 Youth in Action Award winner and discussed her 4-H journey and her experience as the Youth in Action award winner. Sean Flynn from Orange Co. is one of two national 4-H Innovator Award winners. Sean talked about his love for technology and the role 4-H has played in developing his interest in STEM.
Also a big congratulations to the NY Salute to Excellence Volunteer Recognition Award Winners:
John King, Tioga Co.- Volunteer of the Year
Ron Niedermaier, Livingston Co. - Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer
Their nominations will be forwarded to the northeast division, and we hope to hear back this winter. We thank both of you for your support of 4-H in New York.
We look forward to another great event next year.
