Welcome to our site! Here in the Lincoln County Office we are knee deep in the 4-H year. Enrollments are still rolling in and 4-Hers are busy enjoying camps, workshops, trainings and leadership opportunities. We are excited to see the great things coming from a great group of 4-H members and leaders.
Marsha and Audra have been busy working with the Boy's and Girl's Club of Sierra Blanca by taking the opportunity to introduce young people to 4-H by doing hands on projects with them.
Lincoln County 4-Hers just completed a community service project. The 4-Hers made Hot/Cold Paks from tube socks and cracked corn to present to the shut in seniors in Capitan and Carrizozo and to cancer patients receiving chemo therapy.
Marsha will begin working with different groups this month and teaching about diabetes and how to cook for diabetics, as well as working with the local Extension Clubs and their goals of improving their communities with education and community service.
Brenda is working with Carrizozo Elementary School right now teaching nutrition education which includes the opportunity for students to try nutritional healthy foods that they may not otherwise be familiar with.
On the agriculture front, Audra is busy answering questions across the board about drouth, water and refurbishing the landscape after fire as well as issues with bugs and disease.
It is shaping up to be a very interesting year "again", here in Lincoln County, New Mexico.
Come and see us or give us a call if we can be of assistance in any of these areas.
