The annual LaRue County 4-H candy sale begins Nov. 14. Starting today 4-H members may pick up candy at the Extension Office, located at 807 Old Elizabethtown Road, across from Magnolia Bank. Parents must sign a permission form in order for members to participate.  
Members will be selling a variety of candy bars including caramel, crisp, peanut butter and milk chocolate with almonds for $1 each.
For each 40 candy bars sold, the member’s name will go in a drawing for $50 cash.
All sellers will receive a 4-H plastic cup. Other prizes may be earned, depending on the number of candy bars sold. Prizes range from a flashlight to a hoodie or sleeping bag. A complete list of prizes is available at the Extension Office. The sale extends through Dec. 14. All sellers must return money or unsold candy by the Dec. 14 deadline in order to be eligible for prizes.
In addition, this year’s fundraiser will include 4-H members selling the Little Caesars Pizza Kits. Brochures for this sale are now available from the Extension Office. Orders and money are due to the Extension Office by noon on Tuesday, Dec. 6. Checks should be made payable to LaRue County 4-H. Sellers must pick up sold items between 6 and 7 p.m. Dec. 14. Prizes include $50 cash for the top seller; $25 cash for the second top seller. The project club with top sales earns $100 for their club.
Everyone who sells 10 items gets a set of “magic thumbs.” To see what they are and how they work check out D’lites on YouTube.
Thanks to everyone who supports 4-H by selling or purchasing items. Without the funds raised, so many 4-H opportunities would not be available or would be offered with a fee charged per participants. Funds help with 4-H camp scholarships, sponsorships for 4-H members to attend State 4-H Teen Conference and Teen Summit, and so many more activities and events.
4-H enrollment is taking place for 2011-12. School club meetings are being held for 4th and 5th graders. These students have the opportunity to sign up and participate in 4-H at school. However, 4-H is open to all youth ages 9 to 18. All current members must complete a new 4-H enrollment form each year in order to remain a member. 4-H Cloverbud activities are also available for 5 to 8 year olds.
Enrollment forms are available at the Extension Office and http://ces.ca.uky.edu/larue/4HYouthDevelopment. Click on “4-H Enrollment” from the left column of items.
When completing the form, members may select from a variety of 4-H projects and activities. Members may also wish to be involved in 4-H through one of our many 4-H Project Clubs. Current Project Clubs include Shooting Sports, Wranglers Horse Club, Poultry Club, Photography Club, Gardening Club, Cooking Club, Livestock Club and the Rabbit Club.
