She will also be running two workshops called Translating 4-H to Resumes and Interviews, and 4-H Actions + Results = Resume Builders.  We will be having a community service drive for Transitional Learning Center for homeless children, so we ask that you bring school supplies for students from K – 6 grade.  There will be an All-Star roundtable during the second workshop session to improve our county All-Star programs.  We are inviting all past, present and future All-Stars that are available to attend the roundtables.  Along with these sessions, we are also having fun learning sessions to learn things like smoothie making, dog obedience, dancing, sewing, and having fun with lego blocks.  If you have questions, contact Lorita Sutton at loritas@sbcglobal.net
