When you hear the word, “4-H,” what image comes to mind? A green clover? Cows? Goats?
What about food and nutrition, citizenship or public speaking? Do you think about shooting sports, photography, or clothing and textiles? How about traveling across the country and overseas with fellow 4-H’ers?
There is more to 4-H than showing livestock at the Wise County Youth Fair or at the major stock shows. To get a better idea of what 4-H is all about, we invite you to join the members of the Wise County 4-H Clubs at 4-H Explosion on Saturday, Sept. 8.
The event is in conjunction with the Chisholm Trail Days celebration in Decatur. The fun will start at 10 a.m. on the Courthouse lawn in downtown Decatur. Each club will have a booth with information and games and will be happy to share their experiences with you, or answer any questions you might have concerning 4-H.
The Sheriff’s Posse rodeo parade will also begin around the same time, and we are crossing our fingers for cooler weather. 4-H Explosion/Chisholm Trail Days will last until 7 p.m., and those that attend will have the chance to register for door prizes. We will also give families the opportunity to register for 4-H for the 2012-2013 year.
This is a free event the whole family can enjoy. Call the Extension Office at (940) 627-3341 for more information.
