As you guys know I bleed green. I love 4-H and the camping program. It has made me the adult I am today.
Yesterday I received a text from a good friend saying that Sertoma was to be shut down. I couldn’t believe it. I receive a copy of the memo original memo 4-H Camps Update_10-16-13 today. Spurned to action by former camp staffers I created a Facebook group and bought a domain name. I am now looking for people who will help me be the voice of Sertoma 4-H Educational Center. Please email me at janis at janishenderson.com if you are interested in helping.
Here is my suggested action of the day. Email email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Tell them why you think 4-H Camp Sertoma should remain open.
1. The summer 2014 calendar is full (that’s a steady stream of income)
2. Sertoma is supplimenting the camping season and almost self-sufficient thanks to the extra income from wedding groups.
3. Sertoma is not subsidized like the Eastern Center. It is almost financially in the black.
4. 4-H Camp touches the lives of over 1,200 youth a summer!
What else can you do? Join our Save Sertoma Facebook group. I need help making more well crafted talking points. I am an art teacher remember.
Can you believe the WXII12 news even picked up the story!
Creating the Steve Head – I cut out 2″ construction paper squares of different shades of beige, brown and black and white. We glued these on a cardboard box. I put the face on one side and ran the hair line all the way around and filled the rest of the space with random brown squares.
Creating the Creeper Head - Just like with the Steve Head, I cut out 2″ squares of construction paper, but this time the squares were shades of green and then black.
I found a Happy Birthday Banner on the internet and printed it out to hang on the wall.
Tame Wolf Birthday Cake - I didn’t like the minecraft cake symbol as a birthday cake. I wanted something that reflected more of my daughter’s interests. After finding an image of a tame dog for the bingo card below. I suggested we use that as a cake theme. It worked out beautifully.
