As you enter Carthage and Gordonsville be on the lookout for some new signs sponsored by our 4-H Community Club! The signs read “The Smith County 4-H Honor Club and All Stars welcome you to Carthage, TN” and “The Smith County 4-H Honor Club and All Stars welcome you to Gordonsville, TN.” These signs were the idea of the Smith County Community Club to help beautify our county and increase awareness about all the opportunities the club provides. The Community Club is for students in Smith County in grades 7-12. The club meets monthly and concentrates on leadership, citizenship, and community service. Not only is the club fun, and a great way to meet new people, but looks great on resumes, college, and scholarship applications that our 4-H’ers will be filling out some day! If you know a 4-H’er that would like to be in the community club please call our office for more information. These signs would not be possible without the generous support of UCEMC Cares, and Project Hometown Help as well as the support from state and local government.

For further information relating to any of the many 4-H activities, events and projects, please contact Katie Clark in the Smith County office of the University of Tennessee Extension at 735-2900.

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.
