|Deadline for Veterinary Science Program Extended||
Registration deadline extended to August 20th! Please do not miss out on this great opportunity!
My name is Brenna Johns and I am the project coordinator for the new veterinary science project being offered to 4th-6th grade 4-H members in San Benito, Santa Cruz, and Monterey counties. Currently we are looking for both participants and adult volunteers to get involved in the project.
This is an exciting educational project for youth both with and without animal science experience that will teach them about animal science through fun and interactive exercises. This is a great opportunity for youth to become involved in new and different activities as well as a wonderful way to add to their 4-H record book and story. If participants attend all project meetings they will receive a certificate as well as a special gift such as a stethoscope.
The project consists of 9 meetings each with a duration of 1-2 hours. There are three meeting schedule options that are available to participants; weekly, every other week, and every three weeks, to accommodate all family calendars. Similarly, participants can rank their meeting location preferences to prevent lots of travel.
Currently we are also very much in need of adult volunteers to help us provide this exciting project to 4-Hers. All volunteers will receive free training for the project at 3 professional development sessions, and

|Some Sad News About a 4-H Family||
It is with great sorrow that I bring you all this news;
As many of you may have heard about the unfortunate plane crash in Watsonville last Thursday evening, it was confirmed on Friday afternoon that it was the Houghton family of Soquel 4-H.
The Houghton’s (David, DeDe, Luke and Ryan) were an active family in the Soquel 4-H Club and attended 4-H Summer Camp regularly.
The Houghton’s were an active and involved family in the Santa Cruz County Community and the 4-H community. The focus for DeDe and David was always their family, community and living life to the fullest.
David, DeDe and their two boys Ryan and Luke participated in the Soquel 4-H club assisted with projects and attended 4-H summer camp every year. They were people that always greeted you with a smile and a nice greeting no matter what was going on. The boys were happy, fun and smart kids that enjoyed many of our 4-H activities.
Please pass this message on to other members in your club. If you or members of your club would like to attend the memorial services for the family, Services will be THIS Saturday, July 16th, 10am at Twin Lakes church in Aptos (2701 Cabrillo College Drive). Please wear a clover in their honor and feel free to contact me with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-8015
With kind regards,
