Travis County 4-H Office - Update

Unfortunately, there is not much change since the post last week. John's (4-H Administrative Assistant) office has been deemed a disaster zone and no one is allowed to enter that office for any reason at this time (Per county risk management team). There is also no way to physically get into the office to retrieve any documents of any nature as his desks are blocking the door. We have also been told to not go to the office in general.

If you applied for awards such as Gold Star and any others that have interviews, we will not have interviews on the 13th. A date and new location will be announced for a later time.

I realize this is a huge inconvenience for all involved, but we also must adhere to the strict instructions of not entering the office as structural damage is a huge risk factor.
