COARSEGOLD — LCORT leadership conference was last month at Wonder Valley Ranch in Sanger, for kids age 12-14.
LCORT had several sessions on different topics. Some of the topics this year were how to dress and act on an interview, how to think positively, how to introduce a speaker, and how to work well in groups. These sessions were both educational and fun. The facilities at the event are wonderful and, altogether, it’s a beautiful place. The staff are nice and the food is good and it was a very educational experience.
Small animal expo was on Sunday, Feb.21. A small animal expo is an event where you can show small animals and you can try to win a medal. Congratulations to our Coarsegold 4-H dog obedience group, as they all medaled and passed level one.
In January we had favorite foods day. What is favorite foods day? It’s a day when you bring your favorite dish that you make, along with a small description, and a volunteer judges it. You can also sign up to be a judge at favorite foods day.
In December we had our potluck/Christmas party which was so much fun, and before that we had a community clothes exchange, and recently people also took the dog skills test.
