On Monday, Oct 2nd, thirty local members of the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program gathered at the courthouse steps to witness the proclamation given by Judge Robert Newsom signaling the start of National 4-H Week which runs from Oct. 2nd through 7th.
4-H is a national organization which helps young people develop life-long knowledge and skills to become engaged citizens. The organization is divided into many different departments or “projects” which include food and nutrition, mechanics and technology, and agriculture.
¬†All 254 counties in Texas have a 4-H program; as Judge Newsom joked, “The difference between this county and the others is that we’re better!”
There are 160 4-H members in Hopkins County. Our local 4-H members have completed a multitude of camps, leadership projects, project shows, and community service; and plan for this Saturday to be a “community service day” to celebrate National 4-H Week. Members will post videos on Facebook to help promote the 4-H organization.
I like the food department a lot,” Lena Reyes, age 9 and in her second year of 4-H.
“You make a lot of memories and friends. It’s very beneficial,” Savannah Allen, age 15.
“…likes helping people…[and] getting to know new people.” Diego Childs, age 10.
