The tab is still labeled "Skit Night" but this year it is a Saturday/daytime event combining a pancake breakfast with skits and a fund-raiser for a club in Sonoma County that was hit pretty hard by the October fires.

It is also on the Meetup page for East Hills, of course.

It’s not too late to register for the 2018 California 4-H Camping Conference, April 6-8, at beautiful Redwood Glen in Loma Mar, San Mateo County. Held only every-other year, the weekend is designed to increase knowledge, skills, awareness and enthusiasm for staff, adults volunteers and youth who plan and deliver camping programs throughout the state.

A fabulous line-up of workshops awaits, many presented by our UCANR colleagues and other experts in the field. Among the 24 sessions, topics include examining traditions and their purpose; building, evaluating and recognizing staff; findings from our statewide camp evaluation (and how your camp can be involved); and many ideas for integrating STEM, healthy living, and environmental education into your program.

There are also sessions designed to “freshen” camp programming with new ideas for all-camp programming, time-fillers, icebreakers and openings, tools for reflection…and how to create a really great evening campfire!

Did we mention it’s a lot of fun?

Mini pig needs a new home. The pig is 3 years old and is super domesticated, per the owner. She says the pig will make a great pet. Patty suggested the mini pig may be great in a petting zoo.

For more information, please contact Kris at so she can give you the contact information for the owner.
