Horse Club

We are proud to announce that we now have a 4-H Horse Club here in Houston County! The Horse Club is open to 4-H'ers in 4th-12th grade.The first meeting is November 27 from 6PM-7PM at 180 Sandbed Road in Kathleen. Sandbed Road is off of Bear Branch Road, you can't miss it. 4-H Volunteer Melissa Williams will be hosting the meetings and owns her own stable, Sandbed Stables. Mrs. Melissa is a huge help during the Horse Show every year at the Fair. This new club has been a labor of love for Ms. Shelby as she has grown up with horses and they are her true passion. A huge thank you to Mrs. Melissa for helping us get the club started!!  

For more information, please call the office at 478-987-2028 and ask to speak to Ms. Shelby Hollar.

** Future Horse Club dates will be announced shortly!!


Atlanta Hawks

It's almost time for our annual trip to an Atlanta Hawks game! March 31, 2019 is 4-H Day at the Hawks game at State Farm Arena. Ticket price is $40 and that includes a $10 meal voucher and transportation for your 4-H'er to and from the game (staff and screened volunteers will be chaperoning the trip). Pre order ticket sales ends on Monday, February 4. This would be a great Christmas present if your child loves to watch basketball on TV. We even have a certificate we can print up with their name on it if you want to put it in their stocking for Christmas. Please call the office at 478-987-2028 to purchase tickets or if you have any questions.
