4-H Community Service

While exercising social distancing, our members helped to reduce pollution on the Island.  Although our community service event was cancelled, you can see below how members picked up trash from neighborhoods, the Grand Forest, Country Club Road and a few beaches.  Cate even had a supervisor from high above!

At the recommendation of WSU Extension, we are going to pause our Bainbridge Island 4-H projects until further notice.  

We will not hold the beach clean up on March 21st and we will keep you posted as we learn additional information.

Below is a portion of the notice from Kitsap County's 4-H office:

Dear 4-H Community,

WSU Extension is committed to continuing its Land Grant mission and services, while mitigating risk to WSU personnel, program participants, and the public.
Due to the quickly changing status of COVID-19, and in an effort to slow the spread and reduce the number of individuals infected, we are recommending that all 4-H events be postponed at this time.  This is a fluid situation and we will continue to monitor and follow the health departments recommendations.

Update as of Monday, March 9th:  

Please note that at the General Meeting we will not be serving snacks or drinks and will have hand sanitizer available.  

As per the Kitsap Public Health Department, people who are at higher risk for serious illness, including people with underlying health conditions, older adults and pregnant women, should consider avoiding large gatherings to reduce their risk of getting sick. 

If you are sick, please rest and stay home and we'll see you next month.  We also understand if you choose not to attend.

Hello 4-H Members,

We hope you will join us for the March General Meeting which is this Monday, March 9, 2020 at 6:30 pm. 

This is our member recognition evening where yearly pins will be distributed!  We also have a fun game planned!

See you then!
