Email from TX 4-H... One Day 4-H
On October 10, 2009, the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program invite all 4-H members, parents, and volunteers to set aside one day to give back to the communities and counties that have given so much to the 4-H Program. one day 4-H is a state-wide community service day where an individual, club, or county 4-H Program can choose ways to give back. It can be as simple as mowing the lawn of someone who is homebound, to as extensive as sponsoring a fun walk/run for a medical center. Regardless of the magnitude of the event, it is just one day in which our 4-H members come together to say thank you for more than 102 years of 4-H support in Texas.
The Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program has a website dedicated to the one day 4-H event (texas4-h.org). We encourage you to go and visit the site and explore the resources available for 4-H members, clubs, and county to use in developing their project. Resources include a packet for instructions and directions for organizing your one day experience to a resource manual with more than a thousand ideas for community service. Also on the site is a link for 4-H groups who plan to participate in the day to sign-up. By signing up, you qualify your group for awards and recognition for your hard work on October 10, 2009. It also allows the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program and our partners at AgriLife Communications to know of the innovative and cool projects being done so we can come and take photo’s, video and get assist with media. Please help us by making sure your group is registered by September 30, 2009.

Re: Cherokee County Jr. Livestock Show Sale Numbers
Ladies and Gentlemen:
After entering all the 2009 entries that are “marked to sell” into our system, we discovered a 50 percent increase in the total numbers versus our 2008 total numbers. At this time last year, before ineligibility issues, animal issues, etc. we had a total of 203 entries marked to sell. This year we have a total of 305 entries marked to sell. With this increase in the number of entries to be sold and the current state of the economy, we discussed this matter at our board meeting last night.
After a lengthy discussion, it became obvious that we as the board of directors must do something to limit the number of projects being allowed to sell. This is a decision that the board takes very seriously. The decision has been made to allow a maximum number of 200 projects sell at our 2009 show. This is approximately 65 percent of the total number or projects “marked to sell”. This number will be fine tuned after all Divisions have been judged during the junior livestock show. A committee has been formed to look at all the ribbon placings to determine exactly who will sell. The number will not be less than 200 projects, but could possibly increase by a few to finish out a particular ribbon placing. As stated in the rules, no white ribbons will be eligible to sell.
Based on the percentage of “marked to sell” entries in each Division compared to the total number of “marked to sell” entries, the number of entries in each Division that will be allowed to sell are listed below:
Beef – 16 entries, Dairy – 7 entries, Goats – 26 entries, Swine – 37 entries, Poultry – 13 entries, Shop – 77 entries, Pen of Heifers – 2 entries, Rabbits – 22 entries
Please pass this information on to your FFA students and 4-H club members, parents, etc., so everyone is aware of this change.
Also, please pass on to your students and club members, parents, buyer’s group members, and all supporters, the fact that this year’s sale will begin at 3:00 pm Saturday afternoon with the animals. The shop sale will follow immediately after all the animals are sold.
We, as the board of directors, want to express our sincere appreciation to all of our FFA teachers and 4-H leaders that are involved in the Cherokee County Jr. Livestock Show. We have great young people that participate in this show and your dedication to them just helps them that much more.
Once again, thanks for all that you do!
