From your County Extension Agent
First of all I would like to congratulate all
the 4-H members that participated in
the San Antonio Livestock Show. I know
you enjoy those family moments at the
livestock show, waiting for you turn to
show your projects. Also, the 4-H
members that went to the San Angelo
Livestock Show, I hope you all had fun
there. On Saturday, February 23 the
Maverick County Extension Office
conducted a workshop on 4-H
Photography, 4-H Fashion Show, and
Story Board. If you didn’t attended the
workshop you are more than welcome to
participate in these County events. The

workshop was on Saturday, March 1 at

also practiced out side the show barn.
We will continue practicing every other
Friday afternoon starting March 8th. The
