Big E Prep

The Big E is just a week away!! We've been doing a lot of prep work. The skit is coming along really well. Everybody remember to bring their costumes/props! Here is a list of props and costumes that everybody needs:

Jen: Pink outfit
Annika: Messy outfit with stains/rips on it
Elena: Clipboard, black pants, decide on a shirt together, pen
Caty: Clipboard, black pants, decide on a shirt together, pen
Sophia: Sophisticated outfit, magnifying glass
Katharine: Lab coat, goggles, posters
Daisy: Lollipop shirt, name tag

I think these are most of them. There is also a list on your script. We are also going to get a lot of dum dums to hand out in the end when we are sing the lollipop song, and for the parade! 

Our action table is also coming along really well. We just got a copy of the letter and the pictures. 

I don't know about you guys, but I am SOOOOO excited! Make sure to practice your lines for the skit!

Hi Plant a Smile and others! Summer is here! Summer is a busy time; with everybody coming and going it is pretty hard to set up a meeting. Even though it may not seem like it, the Big E is right around the corner! The Big E had over 1 million visitors last year, and Lamps of Lava lured a lot of those people to come check out our awesome action table, along with everything 4h. We are lucky enough to get the chance to go back this year. I hope we are just as successful, and have just as much fun! :) 

Check your email for updates on really cool 4h opportunities, and for club updates!

Tree Tour With Rob

Toady we, Plant A Smile, went to the Newton Cemetery to help the cemetery's arborist, Rob, start marking 100 trees using our Arc GIS software and our GPS. In order to become a level 2 arboretum, the cemetery needs to mark at least 100 different tree specimens. So they turned to the fairest ones of all... Plant A Smile! 
Jen, Katharine, Sophia, Annika, Elena, and Daisy helped out Rob on Tuesday May 27, 2014 at 2:15. 
Keep calm and smile/plant on!
