How about a Happy Holiday History Newsletter edition?

(Sorry, couldn’t resist!)

This short issue highlights the National 4-H Center’s hosting of the National Capitol Christmas Tree. Did you know it rested in Chevy Chase a few days before being strung up on the Capitol grounds?

US Presidents have, for a long time, sent greetings to 4-H’ers; this time we feature Calvin Coolidge’s remarks at Christmas 1925.

The 4-H Clover, which is controlled by law, has gone through many iterations, from traditional to contemporary. Do you remember the 1970s version?

Enjoy this issue and have a wonderful holiday season. See you in 2014!
