Texas has more than 550,000 youth who are involved in 4-H experiences each year.  The Texas 4-H year officially starts on September 1 but enrollment opened on August 15th.  Young people in 4-H learn about citizenship, leadership, foods and nutrition, healthy lifestyles, veterinary science, fashion & interior design, technology, horticulture, agriculture, and other subjects. 

Some of the many events coming up in the fall include 4-H Foods Fun Day, Food Challenge, National 4-H Week activities, 4-H Project Show, and One Day 4-H Community Service Project.  The skills and knowledge learned in 4-H project work help members become more engaged individuals and citizens.

Official 4-H ages are 3rd through 12th grades.  Hopkins County has five 4-H clubs: Miller Grove, Infinity, 4-H Paws (4th & 5th grade school-based club), Veterinary Science, and Cumby.  Each club is led by volunteers.  Membership fee is $25 until October 31, and goes up to $30 after that date.  The adult volunteer application fee is $10, which includes screening.

Contact the Hopkins County Extension Office for enrollment information at 903-885-3443, or drop by 1200 W. Houston Street, Sulphur Springs.  Extension Agents, Johanna Hicks and Mario Villarino, invite you to visit the Extension Office to learn more.
