  • 4-H communications and variety show is March 30

    The Henry County 4-H Communications Event and Variety Show is fast approaching.  
    The date for the competition is March 30 at the Henry County Extension Service office beginning at 6 p.m.   
    While the weather is chilly and we are all starting to suffer from cabin fever, what better use of your time than to write a speech or put together a demonstration.
    Why not invite a friend over and work on an act for the talent show?
    The Speech Contest is judged according to 4-H age, which is how old you were on January 1, 2015.

  • Moore: An open letter to the people of Henry County

     Today I sit at the desk of the Henry County Extension Agent for Agriculture for the last time.  My emotions are mixed.  While I look forward to a new chapter of life, I will sorely miss the daily interactions with a wonderfully talented and dedicated extension staff and you, the people of Henry County.
    Over the past few weeks, since my retirement was announced, I have been visited by so many of you with your expressions of ‘best wishes’ in person or by card or letter.
