Local youth do civic duty during ‘One Day 4-H’


Members of 4-H clubs in Clay County participated in the One Day 4-H program Saturday by completing various community service projects.

The 4-H Horse Club gathered and donated supplies to the Henrietta Volunteer Fire Department, and had a booth at the HVFD Funds for Flames campaign kickoff Oct. 8.  They collected cases of water, Gatorade, lip balm and non-perishable high protein snacks for fire fighters to use while battling blazes.

Henrietta 4-H Club cleaned Clay County’s 1890 Jail Museum and Heritage Center on Saturday.

Vashti 4-H Club cleaned up around the Vashti community and at the community center on Saturday.  Main duties included some landscaping and picking up trash.

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.
