Local youths celebrate 4-H week

Wrangler 4-H Club celebrated National 4-H Week Oct. 3. Members gathered at the Travis Nelson Building to hold their annual end of year social and meeting.

Oct. 3-9 marks National 4-H Week which is celebrated around the world. This is a time to celebrate, promote and share the 4-H movement.

New Mexico is very fortunate to have a strong 4-H program which begins at the club and county level. Quay County has a great leadership team that encourages the seven clubs in the county to strive to “make the best better.”

Wranglers elected their 2011 officers followed by installation and a parent appreciation ceremony. National 4-H Week is a time to encourage others to join 4-H and enjoy the valuable information provided. 4-H is not just about animals. If you can imagine it, 4-H can offer it!
