During our March 4-H Community Club meeting, members made it a point to give back and say thank you to some of the essential workers that have kept things going for over a year now through a global pandemic. Members collected snack items, put goodie baskets together, and wrote thank you notes to show appreciation for some of Smith County’s essential workers. Baskets were delivered to police, fire, EMS stations and the county health department. These 4-H’ers commit their hands to larger service each month at our 4-H Community Club meetings. Smith County 4-H Community Club is open to all 7th-12th graders interested in 4-H, service learning, and having fun! Please email for more information. 

The 4-H Youth Development Program delivers programs through cooperative efforts of the University of Tennessee, Tennessee State University, and public and private sector volunteers.  4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades 4-12, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
