Hi there. We are trying to get our kids (ages 5 & 7) started as Cloverbuds. We live in the county. Not sure what group (of the ones that Corey Childs mentioned to me) would be a better fit, so we’re planning to try out the Dairy Club on Sunday (11-12) at Nalls, 5pm and the Lucky Leaf Club on Tuesday (11-14) at Bville Presbyterian Church, 7pm. If anyone out there could confirm these times/dates/places, I’d appreciate it.
If any Clarke County 4-H Club is interested in donating money for livestock feed for ranchers in southeast Texas please feel free to contact Corey. Thank you!
