Boks Kids Weekly Challenge – May Week 4

This week we challenge you to “get your flow on” and take 10 minutes each day to try some new movement flows and balances. You are probably familiar with downward dog and mountainpose. Try these out but add a few more into the mix – how about some animal poses? Cobra, lizard, butterfly, lotus and camel. Hold each pose for 20-40 seconds before moving onto the next one. Don’t forget to breathe!

A Tradition Continues: Two Volunteer Recognition Programs Featured at 4-H Roundup

Volunteers are at the heart of 4-H. They are making a difference in communities across the state, and motivating others to be involved in 4-H as well. The Tennessee 4-H Awards and Recognition program offers several opportunities for counties to recognize 4-H volunteers. You probably have several deserving nominees in your county.

A Real Live Event!

On Thursday, May 6, 103 4-H professionals gathered at the Rutherford County Extension Office for a one-day Tennessee Association of Extension 4-H Workers conference hosted by the TAE4-HW Specialist Region. Professionals were engaged in three hours of educational workshops ranging from Dancing Fitness to Livestock Activities to STEM Laboratory where they could learn new material to take back to their 4-H’ers.
