I love that our first Splash Trash Tour Host was a County Extension.
Our Extension system was created to help our Land Grant colleges disseminate new information and technologies. There’s one in every state where there’s a Land Grant college. They soon found that adults didn't readily accept new agricultural developments, but young people did - and 4-H Clubs were born.
4-H played such an important part of making me who I am. From 6 - 19, it was a cornerstone of my life - from club meetings to the County and State Fairs.
At the beginning of each meeting, we would stand and solemnly swear,
My H-ead to clearer thinking,
My H-ands to larger service,
My H-eart to greater loyalty, and
My H-ealth to better living
for my club, my community, my country and my world."
