Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Agents Lindy Pitre and Tyler Fitzgerald, along with fourteen Chambers County 4-Hers, visited the Tuesday, September 27, 2016 meeting of the Chambers County Commissioners Court to recognize National 4-H Week.
Jordan Semien, Creek Johnson, Ben Johnson, Julie Johnson, Nathan Boaze, Araceli Guerrero, Kessa Miller, Shelby Pinkston, Anna Hyde, Kaitlyn Hyde, Colton Fant and Isaac Parham – 4-Hers from across Chambers County – represented the Chambers County 4-H Program as a whole as Chambers County Judge Jimmy Sylvia and Chambers County Commissioners Larry George, Mark Huddleston, Gary Nelson and Rusty Senac recognized and presented a signed National 4-H Week Proclamation. Chambers County and its elected officials are a steadfast source of support for the Chambers County 4-H Program and without their assistance and encouragement the program would not be nearly as successful.
The purpose of National 4-H Week is to provide local and county 4-H programs with the opportunity to showcase what they have accomplished and what members gain from their participation in 4-H through activities and events at the local and county level.
The 4-H Youth Development Program of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has been providing experience-based education to young Texans for 108 years. The purpose of the program is to provide a learning experience for the whole child – including head, heart, hands and health – and to help them acquire knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes to enable them to become self-directed, productive and contributing members of society.
Chambers County has eight active 4-H Clubs which offer learning opportunities in animal projects, food and nutrition, fashion and merchandising, photography, arts and may other areas. If you are interested in joining or participating in 4-H in Chambers County, please feel free to contact the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Chambers County at 409-374-2123 or email@example.com.
