Proposed 4-H Council Investment Changes

Motion from council meeting for investment changes to our Georgia Wapple Frazier Endowment

In July we were contacted by Northern Trust, the management company that cares for the funds we hold in the George Wapple Frazier Endowment (currently $1.8 million). They are recommending that we completely change the way we are invested.  A motion was passed at the August 27th Council meeting to follow their recommendations. We will be voting (and all are encouraged to be there) on this motion at the September 18th council meeting.  This letter is to explain the current investments, proposed changes, and why it is in our benefit to follow the recommendations of Northern Trust.

We pay Northern Trust to watch our investments and keep them at a growth vs. income level that we choose (meaning that we want the most income possible without going over a certain, pre-determined risk level).  The amount we pay them for their services varies year by year based on the value of our funds.  They estimate that we will pay $13,000 this year (and that is a discounted rate we get because we’ve been with them for so long).

We are invested in a combination of individual stocks (many picked by the youth in 4H when the trust was initially set up) such as McDonalds, Starbucks, Kohls, Disney, Nike, Apple, Twitter along withmutual funds, and bonds.  In addition to the fees we pay to Northern Tr

Youth Still Exhibits at 2017 San Benito County Fair

It has come to our attention that there is some miss-information about the 4-H entries at the Fair.  Let’s clear things up.

This year the Fair has made some changes.  We will be displaying your 4-H still exhibits in the building that was formerly the Floriculture Building.  As usual each club will take turns hosting the building.  The list is below.  It is also listed in the Premium Book.

There has been some concern voiced about the security of your entries after fair hours, as well as some concerns about the dust settling on your entries.   The building does lock but as you may know some of the walls are constructed out of lattice.  It is our understanding that the lattice will be covered with plastic which will keep down some of the dust and make the building a little more secure. The Fair also has employees patrolling the fairgrounds ensuring livestock as well as still entries are safe. 

Hearing your concerns, a decision has been made to allow members to enter their items in the building, have them judged and then take them home and not have them displayed.  We will let you know what day pick up will be for those entries when you drop them off.  This solution should alleviate your safety concerns while still meeting the Fair requirement of all livestock exhibitors entering a still exhibit.

Important Dates to Remember:  

Entry Due: Friday, Sept. 8, 2017

Receiving: Sat Sept. 23, 2017 and Sun Sept. 24, 2017 10:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Special Update: Budget and Behavior

Dear San Benito County 4-H Community, 

It has come to my attention that there is a lot of grumbling, fingerprinting and ill-will circulating in our program relative to the work of the 4-H sustainability committee. As such, I want to clear the air about mis-conceptions and remind everyone of the code of conduct that applies to all members and adults in the program.

The sustainability committee was appointed by Council President Mike Mansmith to seek input and develop a 4-H Council spending plan in order to manage the Georgia Wapple Fraiser Trust for future generations. In working with our fiscal managers at Northern Trust it was determined that we needed to reduce our annual spending by $20,000 to meet our sustainability goals. The committee - made up by a representative from every 4-H club and chaired by 4-H Council Treasurer Rachel Taylor have been working to modify the budget and come up with livable options.  The committee has kept the Council informed of their progress via Council meetings, the electronic Updates and by seeking input from all throughout the process.

While not in attendance at the April Council meeting, I have come to learn that several concerns were raised about the proposed budget and that disparaging, hurtful and inappropriate remarks have continued to be made about the process, individuals and families in our program via social media and other contexts. This is not how we do business, and I expect this to stop.  4-H prides itself on creating a safe environment for productive discourse and this behavior is quite contrary to this belief.

As you all prepare to attend the sustainability committee meeting Monday May 8 (7PM at the Vets Building) and to vote on the 2017-2018 Council budget at the May 22nd 4-H Council meeting, I urge everyone to be mindful of the code of conduct, to treat everyone with respect and to work towards a manageable solution for all.

Security Volunteers Needed for Pancake Breakfast

Dear 4-H Community,

We have recently been reminded of the need to provide two security guards for the duration of the 4-H Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, April 23rd at Bolado Park.

While the committee and I are attempting to work with the University of California to hire a local security company to meet this requirement, there is a possibility that the University will not have enough time to complete the process prior to the event.  Therefore, Bolado Park will graciously allow us to meet the security requirement through volunteers.

As such, we are looking for the following:

  • Two volunteers per time frame
  • Volunteers must be currently employed in law enforcement (Sheriff, Police, and Highway Patrol) or by a security company
  • Must provide proof of employment
  • Uniform while volunteering is not necessary
  • Do not need to be certified 4-H volunteers
  • Free breakfast provided

If you or anyone you know are willing to help us meet the security needs of this event, please have them contact Lynn Schmitt-McQuitty at lschmittmcquitty@ucanr.edu

Support Flood Victims

Hi All,

 

The San Benito County Office of Emergency Services indicates that the best way to help the victims of the flood is through donations.  All four Hollister Fire Stations are accepting cash and gift cards.

 

Please keep in mind that 4-H has a list of Do’s and Don’ts regarding cash that you need to be mindful of:

 

Don’ts:

  1. Collect cash from people outside of the 4-H program.
  2. Give cash donations as a 4-H club, project, or Council.

 

Do’s:

  1. Collect cash donations from within 4-H (with a Receipt) to purchase needed materials/supplies (NO ALCOHOL OR TOBACCO PRODUCTS).

 

Thanks for doing your part to help the members of our community.

Help Needed for Families Impacted by Flood

Good morning Lynn, 

I am a past community club leader, Fairview, and County Council member.  I am a member of the San Benito Co Search and Rescue and have been involved in the rescue, and now distribution of drinking water, to our county residents affected by the flooding. 

Spring Grove school has, as I understand, volunteered as a drop off and distribution point for donations.  SAR and the Sheriff's Office can not handle running a donation event, but these are great public relations.  

Would our 4-H ers be interested in organizing to receive and distribute donations of clothing, blankets, towels, non-perishable food and waters, and pet food, for our residents?

OES and I await your response.  Please call for additional information.  Thanks so much!

If more than 25, but less than 40 paying attendees sign up by Dec 10, 2015, they will move to the lower portion of camp which houses a maximum of 35 people. If less than 25 paid attendees are registered by Dec 10 the camp will be cancelled.

Registration is due by tomorrow, please see the link below. If you plan on attending this camp, please attend the January Council Meeting on January 25th at the Vets’ Hall to request Council funding for the trip.

Please contact Mindy Gillen, volunteer camp director, ASAP if you plan to attend camp.

Update on Bill Coates

Hello everyone,

For those of you who have not heard, Bill Coates, a long-time 4-H project leader in our county, developed a brain tumor which, having been biopsied yesterday, was found to be fast growing and very aggressive. He will have a second surgery today (4:20 PM). Nancy and the twins are with him at the hospital; and Ryan is arriving today.

 

Please be thinking of Bill and the family today. When more information is received, it will be sent to all.

Thank you,

Emily Whiteley
