Extension’s “Walk Across Texas” Shows Results By Johanna Hicks

Extension’s “Walk Across Texas” Shows Results By Johanna Hicks

Extension’s “Walk Across Texas” Shows Results                Fall is definitely a busy time of year!  And what better incentive is there to acquire some physical activity than cooler weather?  Most people who aren’t able to run, lift weights, or participate in strenuous activity can walk.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension’s program, “Walk Across Texas,” is making an impact in Hopkins County!  This is an initiative to encourage individuals to build a habit of regular walking.                Walk Across Texas is currently going through some revisions to make it even better!  However, the impact is impressive for individuals who have participated in 2018.  Here’s a brief overview: ·        Number of Hopkins County teams: 19 ·        Number of participants: 147 ·        Total miles logged: 15,210.81 ·        Economic impact: $107,165 (based on health care cost savings and ability to avoid or delay diabetes if regular physical activity continues) I want to invite parents who have students at Douglass Early Childhood Learning Center to participate in the upcoming “Walk & Talk” series, which is a spin-off of Walk Across Texas.  We’ll meet each week in the cafeteria for a brief food demonstration, program, or hands-on activity, then proceed outdoors (weather permitting) to walk together. Each session will last about an hour (includes program and walking), so it won’t interfere with other activities.  Each week, miles will be logged, and at the wrap-up in late November, every participant will be recognized and prizes awarded to the top walker and team. Incentive items which correspond with the topic will be given each week.  If you do not receive a flyer, ask for one from the school.  This will be a great way to get in shape for the upcoming holidays, and form a  healthy habit for yourself and your family! Other groups, organizations, churches, and businesses who would like information on starting a team may contact our office and we’ll be glad to provide you with information! National 4-H Week Rapidly Approaching                Each year, the nation’s largest youth organization celebrates the importance of YOUth during National 4-H Week.  The week of October 7-13 has been designated as the time to celebrate –H and promote involvement.  Hopkins County will kick off the celebration on Monday, October 1, with a reading of the proclamation by Judge Robert Newsom on the courthouse steps at 4:30 p.m.  Refreshments will be served, and Extension staff, 4-H members, and leaders will be on hand to answer questions and distribute information about our local 4-H program.  Registration information will also be available for any youth  grades 3 thru 12.                Also starting on November 1, 4-H members may register entries for the 4-H Project Show at the Extension Office.  Entry categories are: crafts, holiday corner, art, needlework, clothing, decorated accessories, general sewing, jewelry, woodworking, leather crafts, scrapbooks, metal work, baked goods, food preservation, horticulture, photography, and poetry.  Age divisions are: Clover Kids (ages 5-7), Juniors (grades 3-5), Intermediates (grades 6-8), and Seniors (grades 9-12).  Entries will be judged on Friday, October 5 and on display to the public during National 4-H Week, October 7-13, at the Extension Office.                Another event taking place during National 4-H Week is the annual fall 4-H Paper Clover Campaign at Tractor Supply, Inc.  The campaign runs October 3-14.  A 4-H exhibit will be set up in the store, and 4-H members will be on hand to answer questions and assist shoppers in carrying out their purchases.  Shoppers are encouraged to donate an extra dollar at check-out, with a portion of the proceeds going to our Hopkins County 4-H program.  This is a national endeavor, and we always appreciate the opportunity to participate in the Paper Clover Campaign and the support of the local Tractor Supply.  Fall Festival Creative Arts Contest                I hope you read about the 2018 Hopkins County Fall Festival Creative Arts Contest and the Arts & Crafts Show.  These are two of the highlights of the Fall Festival, but I might be partial because I’m in charge of both of them!  Calls have been coming in about both events, so there seems to be a lot of interest.  Both events will take place Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 27, at the Sulphur Springs High School.                The Creative Arts contest provides the opportunity to enter items for judging (think State Fair of Texas on a smaller scale).  There are 14 entry categories and 4 age groups, so there are plenty of opportunities for all!  The Arts & Crafts Show allows individuals to sell their hand-made items to the public.  This is a great chance to do some early Christmas shopping for that one-of-a-kind item.  As of this writing, a few indoor spaces remain for anyone wishing to sell their items.  Spaces under the outside covered walkway are also available.  Contact our office at 903-885-3443 for more information, or go to the Hopkins County Fall Festival website to download forms.  Several other Fall Festival activities will be taking place that same weekend, so don’t miss out on the fun!

Let’s Cook! John Chester Dutch Oven Cookoff and Indian Summer Day at Heritage Park October 6!

Posted by on 10:13 am in Community News, Cultural Events, Headlines, Hopkins County News, Lifestyle, News, Sulphur Springs News | Comments Off on Let’s Cook! John Chester Dutch Oven Cookoff and Indian Summer Day at Heritage Park October 6!

Let’s Cook! John Chester Dutch Oven Cookoff and Indian Summer Day at Heritage Park October 6!

It’s the perfect setting…beautiful Heritage Park in Sulphur Springs during the Fall of the year when the Park becomes a showcase of living history and colorful heritage. Families flock to enjoy the Museum and demonstrations of primitive skills, and people you know from all walks of life in Hopkins County dust off their Dutch ovens and start planning winning recipes for a one-of-a-kind food contest. New to Dutch oven cooking? No matter…past winners and seasoned cooks set up alongside beginners and novices…to enjoy the art and science of cooking with coals. Complete contest rules will be provided when you sign up to cook at just $25 per team, but in brief, each team of cooks provides their own dutch ovens, utensils, fuel and foods. Site set-up begins as early as dawn when the cooking fires are lit. Actual cooking begins at the discretion of the individual cooks who must plan their foods to be ready for judging at 11am. Each cooking team must prepare an entire meal, which consists of a meat dish, a vegetable, a bread and a dessert. Following judging, the cooking teams will serve the diners who have paid $5 person to taste and enjoy the delicious creations prepared at all of the sites. Following the meal, cash prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place overall winners as well as to “Best in Pot” winners in each individual category.  Rick Wilson, a member of the Hopkins County Historical Society, conjured up the idea of a Dutch Oven cooking contest following the death of his friend and mentor John “Buffalo” Chester, a renowned outdoor cook. Wilson named it the John Chester Dutch Oven Cooking Contest as a tribute to the Chester family’s heritage of pioneer skills and friendly competition. To instruct the how-to’s of this unique cooking skill, Wilson also formed a Dutch Oven Cooking Class which he offers each Spring in Heritage Park.  During Indian Summer Day, expect to meet a blacksmith, a hide tanner, Early Texas re-enactors and Native American dancers. See Caddo Indian artifacts and watch demonstrations of potters wheel, quilting, rug looming and archery. Kids love to do candle dipping and tin punch and the many hands-on activities. Everyone loves the General Store, the Sweet Shop and Bakery and the music through the Park. Plan a leisurely stroll through the entire grounds and take in the interesting collections inside the Hopkins County Museum. The day-long cover charge is only $3 per person, and will be used for year-round upkeep and maintenance of the grounds and buildings.
