12/03/2019 - Calaveras and Tuolumne County 4-H donors can double their gifts on Dec. 3
Calaveras County, CA...On GivingTuesday, California 4-H supporters will have an opportunity to double their impact with a gift in support of 4-H youth in ​Calaveras and Tuolumne counties. “4-H is the number one youth leadership program in the country, and we consistently hear from 4-H alumni that they attribute their college and career successes to the skillsets they learned in 4-H,” said Rosemary Giannini, 4-H community educator for Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.


GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on Dec. 3, and throughout the year.

This year, Calaveras and Tuolumne County 4-H is asking local businesses and individuals to consider supporting their 4-H programs when making their year-end gift.

“Our goal is to raise $30,000 in support of the Calaveras and Tuolumne County 4-H program. With these funds, we will be able to provide more youth in our county with the skillsets that will set them up for life,” said Giannini. “We will use the funds to offset enrollment fees, purchase supplies, provide livestock loans, and offer fee waivers to camp and the state leadership conference.”

“We are thrilled and grateful to kick off this year’s giving season with a $15,000 gift for Calaveras County 4-H from a generous couple whose mothers were involved in 4-H and want to see the program grow. This lead gift gets us halfway to our fundraising goal,” said JoLynn Miller, UC Cooperative Extension 4-H youth advisor for the Central

Sierra Multi-County Partnership.
The California 4-H Foundation is participating with a $25,000 Giving Tuesday match offered to all 4-H programs throughout California. Each year, the California 4-H Foundation Board works to raise funds to offer a match incentive for the 4-H program.

“This is such a wonderful opportunity,” Miller said. “Donors will have the opportunity to double their gift and help us reach our goal!”

Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Those who are interested in joining ​Calaveras and Tuolumne counties’ GivingTuesday initiative can visit ​http://donate.ucanr.edu, click on the 4-H tile, and choose “Calaveras County” or “Tuolumne County.” For more details about the GivingTuesday movement, visit the GivingTuesday website (www.givingtuesday.org)

11/15/2019 - Calaveras Football Thanks the Seniors Event Tomorrow Night
Valley Springs, CA...Calaveras Football came to an abrupt end on Wednesday and assuming some folks around the county might be free Friday night due to that, stop by Brew’gers this Friday night to congratulate the 2019 Calaveras Football Team on a hard fought season. All players, coaches, family, students, alumni and general public who have supported us since the beginning we hope to see you there. Please help share this as it’s short notice of course. Thank you again for your continued support.


From Calaveras High School....

"Due to an unfortunate clerical error, the 2019 Calaveras Football season has come to an end. Unknowing to coaches and administrators in the Calaveras Football Organization an ineligible player played in the closing minutes of our first round playoff game this past Friday night. Therefore, Calaveras has been forced by the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section to forfeit the aforementioned contest ultimately ending the 2019 Football season for Calaveras Football.

First and foremost, we sincerely apologize to the the Calaveras Senior Football Players for this tragic mistake. As Football coaches we will be able to coach under the lights again, but for those seniors, they may never be under the bright lights again. Due to a minor infraction, these student athletes received the harshest punishment imaginable. It’s a ruling that truly does not match the infraction committed. Most of you seniors will never play this game again and we are truly sorry it ended this way.

Secondly, we would like to apologize to the parents, supporters and alumni of Calaveras Football. You’re unwavering support throughout the season for our players and coaches leaves us forever grateful. The moments experienced this season by these young men will be memories they carry with them for life. Thank you for the time and effort you put forth this season we are truly blessed as a coaching staff to have such a supportive community.

To close, the Calaveras Football Coaching Staff will do everything in its power to ensure something like this never happens again. Although we disagree with the results of this decision, we understand the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section’s stance in this matter. However, the error of a few must not infringe on a student athletes opportunity to pursue and achieve academic and athletic excellence.

Thank you to everyone involved in the Calaveras Football Program and the Calaveras Football Community for your continued support."
