County 4-H holds annual recognition event

Texas County 4-H Recognition Night was recently held in conjunction with the annual University of Missouri Texas County Extension Council Banquet.

“4-H’ers do many wonderful things throughout the program year,” said MU Extension youth development coordinator Janice Weddle.

This year Texas County had four clubs with 158 members and 55 adult volunteers. Youth who participated in awards night completed project records and recognition forms on the projects they had completed during the program year.

The classes are divided by 4-H age, with Clover Kids ages 5 to 7, Level 1 ages 8 to 10, Level 2 ages 11 to 13 and Level 3 ages 14 to 18.

The Houston 4-H Club received the state recognized community service award, based on the percentage of members of a club who participate in community service. The club was recognized for up to 49-percent of members participation in community service.

The Texas County 4-H Program also recognizes the outstanding volunteers who are the foundation of this strong program,” Weddle said. “They are not only an asset to the 4-H program but an asset to this community. Thank you to them for making the community a better place for us all!

“And a huge thank you to all who support Texas County 4-H.”
