  • All folks interested in enrolling in the 2011 Master Cattleman Class are encouraged to call the Henry County Extension Office at 845-2811.  This is for virtually everyone in the cattle industry, primarily beef cattle, regardless of experience.  We are putting the class together in the next couple of weeks, and the first session of the year will be at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 20, at the Shelby County Extension Office.

  • If you have an interest in learning about fabrics, patterns, and sewing machines then the 4-H Sewing Club is for you.  The advanced club will be meeting from 3:30 to 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 27, at the Henry County Cooperative Extension Service.  The advanced club is for members who have sewn with the group last year.  The beginning group will start on the following Monday, Jan. 31, at the same time and place.

  • Just in time to rescue failed New Year’s resolutions to improve health and personal finances, the Cooperative Extension system is launching an online Small Steps to Health and Wealth™ Challenge called “Winter 2011 SSHW Challenge.”  This free six-week program, open to anyone who enrolls online, runs from Sunday, Jan. 16, through Saturday, Feb. 26.  Prizes will be awarded for participants who report the highest point totals.
