Sunol's 4-H is gearing up for an exciting new
year. Their first big meeting is this Friday at 6:30 in the
Sunol Glen School cafeteria where the newly installed officers
will be ready to welcome you. This years officers are President,
Randi Moore; Vice-President, Dani Scroggins; Secretary, Nicole
Nelson; Treasurer, Sarae Van Dyke; Photographer, Andrew Nelson;
Sergeant of Arms, Ryan Harper, Travis Hoxie and Gabrielle Gilbert;
and Historian, Kyle Scroggins.
For eight years, the 4-H community Leader position has been
held by Teresa Donovan and now she has handed the responsibilities
over to Jayne Wells. Teresa said, "It's been a really great
experience. I have grown with the kids and it has given me confidence
as an adult. I have lots of fond memories with the kids in 4-H,
it's a great experience for both girls and boys and the whole
family. It is a family experience, which I really like".
Teresa and husband Terry has lived in Sunol for nearly thirty
years and has been involved in Sunol 4-H for nearly half of
that beginning when daughter Katie was in 1st grade, now Katie
is attending Las Positas College. While Katie is too old to
be a member of the group, her younger brothers, Luke and Marc
are still active in 4-H. Teresa plans to coordinate a gardening
project in 4-H this coming year.
Jayne has been involved with the Sunol 4-H group for the past
five years, was previously involved with the Mountain House
4-H and was an Associates Director with the Livermore Rodeo
Association for 9 years. Jayne and husband, Jeff, along with
children Gabrielle and Devin have horses, dogs, chickens and
a rabbit on their ranch in Sunol. "A couple of my goals
as the new community club leader is to increase awareness and
to promote the values of 4-H, which in turn will hopefully increase
the membership of Sunol 4-H", says Jayne.
Jayne says that they will be offering projects in beef, swine,
dairy cattle, horse, sheep, rabbit, woodworking, leadership
and new this year, gardening and card crafts. Co-leaders Dale
Scroggins and Gina Nelson will also be available to assist Jayne
in her first year of Community Club Leader. Jayne said, "We
are also looking for adults who might be interested in leading
a specific project. We can never have enough volunteers",
she added "They don't have to have kids in 4-H, they just
have to like kids!" For more information or if you would
like to volunteer, please contact Jayne at 925-862-9040 or email
her at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
