Giving Up The Green Blazer

Posted: August 11, 2011

Every year in July/August the current PA State 4-H Council team retires and a new council is inducted. Charged with representing the entire 4-H program throughout the state councils work tirelessly dedicating themselves to the betterment of the 4-H program.

It's hard to believe how fast the month of July came to an end along with our council term. State council was an amazing experience and a wonderful opportunity. I got to share that experience with my 5 new friends and 2 great advisers.


You were always the one to light the fire
By pushing us to make our spirits higher
As president you made us work together
And overcome to make the best better


You were Logans' right hand woman, you made a good VPO
Reminding us of reports & blogs had us on our toes
Until one day at SLC you had us all rattled
Your main responsibility was to keep track of the gavel


You provided the council with entertainment and food
We had a lot of laughs, and you set the mood
We had no idea our VPI had such a soft heart
We only thought he like heavy metal, which was only the start
We later on found out he likes to fence and ball room dance


You were the Sentinal who made it fun
You put smiles on our faces, and made us one
You told us how neat your exchange to Brazil really was
The impact on your life made it the buzz


You were the one to jump into any conversation
You kept us strong by providing a good foundation
We learned that you town might be handy
That comes complete with a shot gun granny


Matt and Mya- You were our fearless leaders
That made us become better spellers and readers
I want to thank the both of you for everything you do
I will always be able to step up and take a challenge to anything that is new

We will have everlasting memories and a lot of inside jokes. We worked hard together which made us so great. Are time flew by so fast but we always have each other to make our friendships last.
