October has been designated as 4-H month in Jackson County. The Jackson County officers met with County Commissioners Thursday afternoon to declare 4-H Month for the county.
The 4-H Club dates back to 1902 when A.B. Graham saw the need for vocational agricultural in rural areas.That when he began the 4-H Club. Throughout the years 4-H has grown into what it is today. It is not just about animals and agriculture, its about so much more. In Jackson County they have several different project clubs including robotics, photography, and sewing, just to name a few. They also have the traditional clubs that kids can get involved in, Cloverbuds for kids ages 5-8, and 4-H members are ages 9-18 years. They really have something for all ages.
The 4-H pledge goes, “I pledge my head to clearer thinking, My heart to greater loyalty, My hands to larger service, And my health to better living, For my club, my community, my country and my world.”
