News for 7/22/20
Congrats Kids! The Busy Bees had a busy week and weekend at the Smith County Free Fair, July 16-20. All the kids did a terrific job showing their projects. Fair time is a great experience for youth to learn the benefits of hard work and good effort, giving back and being good role models. So many life-long skills can be taken away from a childhood in 4-H.
