In the regular meeting of the Jack County Commissioners Monday, County Judge Mitchell Davenport signed a proclamation to designate Oct. 6 - 12 as National 4-H Week in Texas.
The proclamation states more than 619,000 youth participants are involved in 4-H, with 56,000 volunteers giving of their time, talents, energies and resources to these youth.
The program of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service provides experienced-based education to the whole child.
Making it more special in Jack County is that 4-H started here in 1907 with the Corn Club. For more history, visit our Jack County Museum.
