WHS Rodeo Club selling fruit
The WHS Rodeo Club is holding their annual fruit sale, starting October 13 and running through November 3.
The kids are selling 20 and 40 pound boxes of oranges and grapefruit, $27 and $49 respectively. They also have mandarin oranges in 5-pound boxes for 13.50. Prices are the same as last year.
Due to delivery constraints, the sale is happening this fall instead of late winter as has been typical in past years. The supplier promises the same high quality of fruit.
Delivery will be the week of December 8.
Members raise money to help with their travel expenses during rodeo season. Anyone who wishes to buy fruit may contact a rodeo club member or call Jodi at 580-2055. Members include: Cyris Robertson, Brock Johnson, Jordana Smith, Chance Lamb, and Mesquite Melton.
Join Madison/Jefferson County 4-H
Want to get involved in the greatest youth program happening in your community? Then join 4-H and bring a friend along with you.
Four-H is your passport to adventure, and October is the month to sign up! Clubs are currently looking for members.
Four-H is open to all youth ages 6-19. Six to 8-year-olds join a club as a Cloverbud to explore the variety of programs available while having fun in a non-competitive environment.
Nine to 19-year-olds can enroll in specific projects like woodworking, sewing, cooking, robotics, shooting sports or photography just to name a few, and of course just about any animal you might find on a local farm or ranch.
There are more than 50 different project areas!
Kids share their experiences during fair through exhibits and throughout the year through community events. Enrollment fees are minimal, and all materials are sold at the cost it takes to produce them.
Parents and volunteers make this program happen and are strongly encouraged to sign up as well. Four-H creates a great opportunity for parents to mentor their own children as well as others.
Four-H isn’t just about fair, although that is a great time! It also offers International programs, leadership programs, volunteer programs, and grants and scholarships to its members.
