Tips for Financial Accountability:

If your club has a bank account, here are some questions to ask to assess if the club’s financial accountability is in order:

  • Does your account have at least two signers from at least two different families?
  • Does your club have an annual budget approved by the members?
  • After a fundraising event, is the cash counted and reported by two individuals, not from the same family?
  • If reimbursements are made, are the receipts signed and recorded?
  • Are all checks for income made payable to the club account and not to any leader, member or other individual or firm?
  • Are all checks promptly endorsed “For Deposit Only” in the name of the club?
  • Does a committee of 4-H members and leaders conduct a review of the books each year?

What To Do When It Snows…

If it is after 4:30 p.m. and you are wondering if a County 4-H event is canceled because of inclement weather, please call the Extension Office at 303-730-1920 and listen to the recorded message. Clubs are urged to make a decision about what they will do in bad weather conditions and communicate that decision to the club members.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
