Clover Trivia:  What is Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom?

Answer:  Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom (OAITC) is the popular school enrichment program whose purpose is to help familiarize school children and teachers with the food and fiber industry.   

Ringling 4-H Thursday, October 24, an informative meeting was held for parents interested in enrolling their children in 4-H.  Volunteer leader, Parilyn Hairod, reported that a tentative schedule for meeting will be:   Cloverbuds (ages 5-7) will meet the 1st and 3rd Mondays and 4-H members (ages 8 and in the 3rd grade and older) will meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays.  This will continue until the groups have been better established and ready for upcoming 4-H events.  4-H is a wonderful program to help teach our youth leadership and other responsibilities – it is more than showing livestock.  What are the interests of our youth?  There is a program for their interest 

• Photography, Cooking, Sewing, Arts, Shooting Sports, Recycle/Refurbish, Wildlife, and more!  Look for the 4-H Float at the Ringling Christmas Parade.  Waurika’s Christmas Parade will be Saturday, December 14. Thank you, Parilyn Hairod for becoming a 4-H Adult Volunteer!
