Hopkins County 4-H’ers Host Virginia 4-H Families

Just in time for the 2015 Dairy Festival, 4-H families will be visiting Hopkins County. Twenty-eight youth from Smyth County, Virginia will spend four nights in host homes and enjoy many of the sites, smells, and sounds of Hopkins County!

Our visitor will be taking part in Festival activities and even have a trip to AT&T Stadium planned. Be sure to extend a proper Texas Welcome if you happen to meet of our esteemed visitors.

Hopkins County 4-H members grades 6 and up will have the opportunity to travel to Virginia during the summer of 2016 if funds can be raised. Each participant will be responsible for assisting with fund raisers and making a commitment to represent Hopkins County as an ambassador.

Two summers in a row, a 4-H group from Wisconsin visited Hopkins County and we were able to send a group of 12 (8 4-H members and 4 adults) to visit Wisconsin during the summer of 2014 to complete the exchange.  They visited 17 states on their trip and brought back many pictures, souvenirs, and memories.

The 4-H program is the nation’s largest youth organization, and Hopkins County Extension staff members are proud to have the opportunity to work with today’s youth in order to make them strong, contributing members of society!  The 4-H pledge sums it up nicely:

I pledge my Head to clearer thinking,

My Heart to greater loyalty,

My Hands to larger service,

And my Health to better living,

For my club, my community, my country, and my world.
