Next week is Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love that we set aside this special time to be with friends and family, and to reflect on and give thanks for all the things we have to be grateful for.
I want to take this time to thank all of our YD, and county and regional support staff for the many valuable ways you give to 4-H, and tell you how grateful I am for each and every one of you. Your contributions of time and talent make it possible to provide positive learning experiences and make a difference in the lives of youth.
I hope that 4-H has also given back to you, either by providing you with your own learning experiences and opportunities to grow, or through the satisfaction you gain by knowing your work helps Minnesota youth to learn and lead.
Enjoy the holiday with your family and friends,
