Holiday Potluck and Auction

Our December club meeting on Thursday, 12/14/23, is not a regular meeting but our club's annual holiday party and auction. It is a very merry event with great food (a potluck), games and competitions, and an auction fundraiser of items prepared by the club's projects. Family and friends are welcome to join the party. Please note the different meeting time - this event begins at 6:00pm. We'll eat dinner at 6:20pm. Auction starts at 7:00pm, followed by games.

Each family is requested to bring food for the potluck that can serve 10-12 people. The categories are broken up alphabetically by last name starting with these letters:

A-L: Side dish or Salad

M-Z: Main dish

Cake and drinks will be provided for the club.


Along with the potluck, we have several activities and competitions that will occur during the potluck. Hat Contest (best holiday themed hat), a Candy Guessing Contest, and a Present Wrapping Contest

After the potluck we will have the Holiday Auction! Families will receive a bid number that can be used in the auction and your bids will be recorded so you can come up and buy your item at any time. The auctioned items will have been made by the kids in their respective projects, so if you want to get your child's item bring your wallet (cash or check only). We hope to see you there, and enjoy a good time with you!

You're invited to attend our next Community Club Meeting to learn all about Redwood 4-H and how to get involved in.

What Redwood 4-H does

Monthly Community Club Meetings

Join us for announcements, presentations, guest speakers, discussions, games, snacks and time for families to meet and socialize

Elected youth officers run the club meetings, learning valuable parliamentary procedures, organization and leadership skills. The meetings have a theme and consist of ice breakers, Business, Program, Project Reports, Service Project, Recreation and Refreshments that the youth officers plan for each club meeting at their Officer Meetings. 


Projects are smaller groups of 4-Hers that typically meet once a month to learn by doing and acquire skills around the project's topic. Redwood 4-H offers many Projects, catering to youth with all kinds of skills and interests. Once per year, each project brings the snacks to one Club Meeting.

Socials, Service Projects and Workshops

We hold two potlucks and we have service projects to give back to the community. We will be adding more socials and single day workshops this year so youth have more learning opportunites and families have more time to connect. We're planing county fair project days for time to make and learn how to submit items into the Alameda County Fair.


News Flash

We're looking for more Project Leaders and Co-Leaders to offer additional Projects

Being a Project Leader is a great way to spend time with your kid(s) and make a meaningful impact on your community. Do you have any talents, hobbies, or things you want to learn that you could teach to youth? Does your kid have any interests for a Project that you could lead with them? Would you like to work with another Co-Leader to start a new project? From Geocaching and Tabletop Games to Cooking and Photography, there are projects that fit any level of expertise. Some projects have guides to help you get started or you can create a brand new Project. Learn more on our Volunteer page.
