Join the Lincoln County Extension Office and the Lincoln County Senior Center in writing holiday letters to LC residents!

Letters are due by November 20th, 2020 to the Lincoln County Extension Office located at 2080 Rowland-York Drive, Lincolnton GA 30817.

For every 6 letters submitted, Extension Staff will sign off on 1 hour of community service completed. These hours can be used for 4-H Portfolios, Beta Club, or other service requirements.

Letters should be approximately 1 page in length and should follow the formatting example below:

Types of welcome/opening that are appropriate include:

  1. Dear Lincoln County Resident
  2. Dear Friend
  3. Season’s Greetings
  4. Hello

Types of closing/goodbye that are appropriate include:

  1. Sincerely
  2. Thinking of you
  3. Happy Holidays
  4. Best wishes
  5. Regards

Other formatting ideas if you get stuck…

Start by introducing yourself! Who are you? How long have you been in 4-H?

Then consider a paragraph on:

Past: What are some things you’ve done this year? Is there anything you’re particularly proud of? Have you done 4-H before? What about other clubs or activities?

Future: What are you excited about this holiday season? Do you have any fun traditions you’re going to be doing with your family? What about for next year?

Questions: Do you have any thoughtful questions for your recipient?

Let the tone of your letter guide you- we simply want to let Lincoln County residents know we are thinking of them during this season!

If you hand-write your letters, make sure they are neat and easy to read! Feel free to make your letters your own with colored paper, pens, markers, or by including drawings or other fun things. Be creative!


Anything that can identify you specifically, including:
last name, birth date, address, phone number, mom/dad/aunt/grandma/relatives last name, etc.

Knowing your first name and that you’re a 4-H’er is plenty!
