About Lone Oak, Texas 4-H

Lone Oak Texas 4-H was founded in November 2011Lone Oak 4H

We first met at Boyer Farm and Feed in Lone Oak, TX to organize our new club in October of 2011.  Over 25 people (kids and adults) attended the first meeting to show support for starting a chapter in Lone Oak. 

Our first officer election and training all took place rapidly during the time we held our meetings at the feed store.

We held our first few meeting at the feed store but quickly realized that we would need a larger facility to accommodate our growing club.  We now meet every 1st Thursday at 6:00pm at the Lone Oak Civic Center. (See calendar for details)

Flag PresentaionWe proudly fly an American Flag at our meetingsthat was flown on a mission in Afghanistan.  The flag was donated by the Jimenez family at our first official meeting and installation of officers.

We are a diverse club with projects in all different areas including robotics, shooting sports, rabbits, textiles, cooking and various animal projects.  We also host a horse project group that is open to all Hunt County Horse Project participants.

Our Clover Kids participate in meetings and community services projects as well as other club activities.  Clover Kids have special actives during our regular meeting.  There are special projects in 4-H on the county level that they can participate in. 

What Is 4-H All About?

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is about having fun, learning, exploring and discovering. In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, become leaders and help shape their communities.

More than 65,000 Texas youth are enrolled members of 4-H community clubs in Texas. Another 850,000 Texas youth get involved in 4-H through special educational opportunities at school, in after school programs, or at neighborhood or youth centers. These youth live in cities, suburbs, small towns and rural communities.

4-H gives them a chance to pursue their own interests - from photography to computers, from building rockets to raising sheep. A list of 4-H projects is available online. They go places - to camp, to state and national conferences. They learn to be leaders and active citizens.

In 4-H clubs, they serve as officers and learn to conduct meetings, handle club funds, and facilitate group decision-making. In a growing number of communities, 4-H youth serve as youth representatives in municipal or county government or as members of Teen Courts. They give back to their communities. 4-H members get involved in volunteer projects to protect the environment, mentor younger children and help people who are less fortunate.
