Last week a copy of an email was received from Melinda Koppinger, the departing editor of the Valley Home 4-H Bug asking members running for office in the upcoming fall 4-H club to submit letters telling what office they are seeking and why. This week I would like to share with Valley Home News column readers these letters.
“Hi, my name is Marybeth Carpenter, I hope you will vote for me to be your secretary this year. Thank you for your vote.”
“Hello, I am Hailey Smith, and I am running for the Bug. The reason why I would be a good Bug Editor is because even at the age of 10 I am very responsible and a good writer. As Bug Editor I will send a letter to every 4-H member on time telling them the right information they need for 4-H. The information the members will receive will be about upcoming events and meetings. Thank you for your vote. Hailey Smith.”
“Hi! I’m Jenna Heaton and I am running for president. I hope to make next year a very fun year, have lots of fun activities, and make the meetings useful, fast, and interesting. I have been an officer for five years now and feel I have the experience and enthusiasm to be a great president! Working together I know we can make Valley Home 4-H the best it can be!”
“Hi. My name is Nathan Soares and I would like to be Supply Chairman because I have been in 4-H for six years and I have never been an officer. It important to me that people support 4-H by buying shirts and hats and I will try my best to encourage that.”
“Hi. My name is Jordan McCain and I am running to be the 2010-2011 Valley Home vice-president. I think I would be a good vice-president because I have been in 4-H for seven years and know how to run meetings. If the president is ever absent I am fully capable of taking over.”
“Hi. My name is Maci. I have been in 4-H for one year. I would like to be sergeant of arms because you get to say “ready salute” for the flag salute. Thank you.”
“Dear 4-H, I would like to be historian because I LOVE to take pictures and make scrapbooks. One time I made a very pretty scrapbook for my BFF. And she loved it. And I am very crafty with anything. I can turn something boring into something great. So I would love to be your Valley Home Historian. Thank you, Kiley Rinna.”
“Hi! My name is Cody Bartholomew and I am running for sergeant of arms because I love 4-H. Thank you.”
This week’s message from Melinda ended with “these are your nominees, thank you for voting!” The meeting was a pot-luck on Tuesday, June 9, at the church. A thank you was included from your departing Bug Editor, Melinda Koppinger.
