Texas 4-H members across Clay County will be working to make a difference through the organization’s “One Day 4-H”, a day of community service, Saturday, Oct. 8. And, they are asking for your help.
One Day 4-H concludes National 4-H Week which began Oct. 2. One Day 4-H is one day for all the 4-H members, parents, leaders and volunteers to step out into their communities and county and say “thank you”. The day is a way to give back for more than 103 years of support to 4-H in Texas. This day of community service is whatever each 4-H member, club, or county 4-H program wants it to be. In 2010, more than 11,000 youth and adults participated in this great event.
The following Clay County 4-H clubs will be doing community service projects on Saturday and would appreciate your support:
- 4-H Horse Club is doing Operation Supply Drop to benefit the Henrietta Volunteer Fire Department. They are collecting supplies (i.e. cases of water, Gatorade, lip balm, non-perishable high protein snacks). The Henrietta VFD’s fundraiser is on Saturday, Oct. 8 beginning at 11 a.m. and ending with a street dance around midnight. They will have events going on throughout the day at the fire department grounds on Hwy. 148 North. The 4-H group will man a booth during the event, collecting supplies and/or money as a community service project. Anyone that wants to donate supplies can either drop them off at the Extension Office prior to Saturday, Oct. 8 or find their booth at the event. The project coordinators are Shell and Cassie Pickett.
