Returning members: If you do not re-enroll by March 15, 2017, you will NOT be eligible to participate in the spring or summer county fair, no exceptions.
There are three steps to re-enrolling: online enrollment, the physical submission of the consent form, and the physical submission of the enrollment fee to the Southern Oregon Research and Extension Center (569 Hanley Rd., Central Point). Once these steps are done, we activate you on 4Honline. Please check your 4Honline account to see if you are listed as “Inactive,” “Pending,” or “Active.” If you are Inactive, you must go through the online enrollment for the year and submit the consent form and fee. If you are Pending, you must submit your consent form and enrollment fee. If you are Active then you are good to go! For a list of steps and instructions on how to re-enroll, see the link below:
If you have any questions, please ask them now. You can call the Extension Center at (541) 776-7371or email Sara Shelton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kim Skomerza at email@example.com. The best time to re-enroll is now; waiting until March 15 to re-enroll is ill advised.
