Texas Wranglers: Katie and Diesel

Here are two photos of Texas Wrangler 4H'er Katie (age 10) showing 'Diesel' last weekend at the Keller Saddle Club Open Horse Show. Katie took overall high point for her age group last weekend at both the Johnson County 4H Open Show and Keller Saddle Club Open Show. 'Diesel' is her 4H horse project this year.

Westside 4-H: Community Service

Goodness, I haven't posted on this thing in forever.  For those of you who probably don't remember who I am, my name is Amanda Roach, and I was the 2010-2011 Reporter.  Now, Will Babler and I are the 2011-2012 historians.  One of my projects I've taken on through being Historian is bringing my old blog back to life, with pictures of everything going on in Tarrant County 4-H.  Just like these:

The Westside 4-H club recently did this community service project to cover up Gang Graffiti with Youth Art.  Studies find that murals have proven to be an effective means of deterring graffiti from appearing on public and private structures.  I think that it just looks AWESOME!  Good job, Westside!

Share-The-Fun results!

Hey guys!  As many of you know, the county talent show (Share-the-Fun) was on Friday, March 25th (Wow, look at how late I am lol) Everyone who participated received a blue ribbon, and there were some amazing acts there!  It was a whole lot of fun.  
For whoever wants to go to District, it is on Saturday, April 30th.  It is at Texas A&M Commerce in the afternoon.
Note, If you also made it to District in Educational presentations, you have to pick between Share-the-Fun, and that.

Good job to all who participated!


P.S. The picture is of 'My 4-H is Better than Your 4-H' preformed by Amanda Roach (ME!) and Katie Womble.
P.P.S. I would love to get more pictures on here, so if you have any from this contest, please send them to me!

Last week I...

Hey guys!  Sorry I haven't updated in a bit, but look at the 4-H filled week I've had!
On Monday: I went to the County Council Meeting in Downtown Fort Worth, which was a ton of fun!
On Tuesday: After my mom wrapped up her 4-H Junior Master Gardener lesson, my family took off to On the Border, where I ate tacos and saw 4-Her's all over the place!
On Wednesday: One of my friends and I finished the script for our skit for the up coming Share-the-Fun Talent show.
On Thursday: I began to think of my outfit for the up coming 4-H Dance
On Friday: I went to a class on cake decorating, which I think will help me when I go to upcoming Food Competitions.
So even if I don't update this blog for a little while, there's still tons of 4-H stuff to be done! 

Talk to Ya'll Later,

Unless you've been living under a blog-less rock, you probably know that last Thursday through Saturday was the Tarrant County Junior Livestock Show!!!
And with over 500 entries in all in the Youth Fair, I don't think many people were hiding out under a blog-less rock ;)
4-H was represented well by all the members who participated in the Tarrant County Junior Livestock Show.  I know for fact that many of the winners in the competition were 4-H members!
Good job to all that participated!


P.S. In case you missed it, we got a story about us in the Fort Worth Star Telegram on Saturday AND Sunday!!!
