  • Bug proof your house this fall

    You may have noticed your home being invaded by an assortment of pests this fall, including Asian lady beetles, Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs, boxelder bugs, crickets, spiders and black soldier beetle larvae. These creatures typically visit homes that provide easy entry this time of year, often seeking refuge from changing weather.

  • Don't miss the Holiday Bazaar

    The weather is cooler, the holiday lights are beginning to twinkle at area stores, and it is time to think about those dreaded words–holiday shopping!  
    No longer do those have to be words that put fear into the hearts of men (and women).  
    The 22nd annual Extension Holiday Bazaar, sponsored by the Henry County Homemakers Organization, will help you fill up those stockings with no problem at all.

  • 4-H means business at the fair

     Henry County 4-H’ers have developed their own businesses through the 4-H Means Business Club.  The club began last year after a discussion about how many talented 4-H’ers we have in the county and how they could put their skills to use to earn money. 

    The club began with eight different businesses and currently has six that are working hard to fine tune their products.
