4-H Livestock club elects new officers
The 4-H Livestock club elected officers at a recent meeting for the 2019-2020 year. Courtney Madison was elected president, vice president went to Abby Page, secretary was won by Lottie Mae Hazelgrove and Kelly Womack was elected treasurer. Congratulations to these fine young people who are getting involved in extracurricular activities and pursuing their interests, while learning responsibility and how to become a leader, all while caring for their livestock animals. We’ve all had lots of meals over the holidays and more to come. But consider this. Eating around your own kitchen table with your family will include more fruits and vegetables, enable you to control weight gain, improve family relationships, and save you money. Try it regularly and enjoy the benefits.
