Lassen County 4H Ambassador's Corner

By Rebecca Kirklin

My name is Rebecca Kirklin! I am 15-years old and a sophomore at Thompson Peak Charter School. I have been in 4-H for 6 years. This year, I am the 4-H County Ambassador. I look forward to working with 4-H members and representing 4-H in Lassen County.

Let me tell you a little about myself. My favorite project is the Leadership Development. It is my favorite project because I get to learn new leadership skills by doing leadership activities with my friends. I enjoy showing small animals and last year I showed a market goat for the first time.

I am the teen leader for the Richmond 4-H Poultry Project and a teen leader for the county-wide Shooting Sports Project. Through 4-H I have learned more about character development and made connections with other members and the community.

Maybe some of you are asking, "What is 4-H?" 4-H is one of the largest youth development organizations in the United States. 4-H is found in almost every county across the nation and enjoys a partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the state land-grant universities (e.g., University of California) and local county governments.

4-H is about youth and adults working together as partners in designing and implementing club and individual plans for activities and events. Positive youth development is the primary goal of 4-H. The project area serves as the vehicle for members to learn and master project-specific skills while developing basic life skills. There are many different projects.

A common misconception is that members have to do an animal project, they don't!

All projects support the ultimate goal for the 4-H member to develop positive personal assets needed to live successfully in a diverse and changing world.

4-H participation has shown many positive outcomes. 4-H participants have higher participation in civic contribution, higher grades, increased healthy habits, and higher participation in science than other youth.

Some goals I have for the year as 4-H Ambassador include promoting 4-H in the community and starting a countywide project for clover buds (also known as primaries). I plan on working closely with the leadership development project to promote 4-H. I am working on making a countywide project for the clover buds to spark an interest in 4-H.

If you would like to find out more about 4-H and possibly join, please contact Darcy Hanson, the 4-H Program Representative. Her number is (530) 251-8285. Her email is

Lassen County 4-H has 8 different clubs spread around the county that meet monthly on various nights. One is sure to fit your schedule.

Lassen County 4-H will be holding a drive through dinner fundraiser on Friday, October 30th. The menu for the fundraiser is chicken or tri-tip, potato salad, watermelon, a roll, and cookies. Tickets are $10. To buy tickets, please contact Darcy Hanson at the phone number or email listed above.

I am honored for the opportunity to be the ambassador for the upcoming year! I look forward to working with my advisor Ms. Dilts, other adult leaders, and the Leadership Development as a team.

This next year will help prepare me for challenges I may have to work through later in life. I am excited to see what the next year will hold!

Susanville Banker Retires
September 1, 1919

After more than forty years of business life in Susanville, Jules Alexander, principal owner of the Lassen Industrial Bank, has sold his stock in that institution and will retire within a shot time.
