The Atascosa County Extension Office 4-H Interpretations for 2018 were presented by the Atascosa 4-H Council members and Dale Rankin. The following was reported:
Currently we have eight 4-H Clubs. Our annual budget to operate 4-H in Atascosa County is $15,150.00.
Our annual 4-H Awards Banquet has 192 4-Hers, family members and guests this year.
All of our clubs raised money and supplies to help with counties effected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Atascosa County also has a very active 4-H Ambassador Group which promotes the benefits of 4-H to non-member groups. Each July we hold a county wide 4-H Officer training and Manager training. Our 4-H members earned $43,500.00 in 4-H related college scholarships.
