Junior Leadership Retreat - Nov 11-13

San Antonio Stock Show School Tour Guides!

The School Tours program gives young students and their teachers the opportunity to learn about past and present methods of agriculture. School Tours are offered to students in Kindergarten through third grade attending public, private and home schools. High School aged students of 4-H, FFA and FCCLA organizations from South Texas are invited each year to serve as Tour Guides for this committee. Tour Guides assist in educating the students about agriculture and its valued importance, while sharpening their leadership and responsibility skills. Each tour lasts 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

During the tour, students will visit a number of areas where they can view exhibits and demonstrations. Animal Adventures and the Horse Center are just a couple of the areas students will visit to learn more about agriculture through interactive hands-on displays and view live farm animals that include cattle, swine, sheep, goats, poultry and horses. The tours also visit the Family Fair area of the grounds. This area has additional exhibits, live entertainment and petting zoos. Some of these school children think their milk only comes from the store – what an impact you can have on them!

The dates we have available to guide tours this year are:
-         - Monday, February 13, 2017
-        - Tuesday, February 14, 2017
-        - Wednesday, February 15, 2017
-        - Thursday, February 16, 2017
-        - Friday, February 17, 2017
-        - Monday, February 20, 2017
-        - Tuesday, February 21, 2017
-        - Wednesday, February 22, 2017
-       NO TOURS Feb 23-24

This is a FIRM COMMITMENT on your part – you are expected to be at the stock show at 7:30 in the morning and won’t be done until 3 p.m. that day. You may lead more than one tour that day and you generally work with another tour guide.

If you are interested in guiding school tours through the San Antonio Livestock Show, please contact Janet at to sign up. Be sure to specify the exact date you want to guide tours. (Feb. 20 is a school holiday, if that helps you make up your mind!)

Deadline to sign up is November 11. School tours will be held on the dates established regardless of the weather, so dress appropriately! Remember, you are representing Comal County 4-H!

Gruene Kountry 4-H Club held their first meeting of the year on Sunday, September 11th at Mission Valley Community Center. There were 62 people in attendance: 36 members, 25 adults, and 1 guest.  It was great to see everyone again!
This year our theme will be “Field to Freezer” and we will learn about food production, processing, inspection, storage, etc.  Our guest speaker this month was Stacy Haugen, a Sanitarian II with the Texas Department of State Health Services.  Mrs. Haugen gave an overview of her job and how she goes into food processing facilities and completes safety inspections. The members of the club were very intrigued by her presentation and asked many questions. 
For our recreation, Sarah Syamken led us in playing the game Green Glass Door.   We then enjoyed refreshments and played on the grounds.
The adults met with Mrs. Kreusler and covered the new 4-H Eligibility Policy and the Vet Feed Directive, along with our plans for the year.
Our next meeting will be our One Day 4-H project on Sunday, October 9th, at the SOS Food Bank.  Going along with our theme, we will donate food items and work sorting food.  We will also learn about the Food Bank with a presentation by a volunteer.
