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.
