  • Keep grain bin safety in mind; it may save lives

    First off, I want to thank all of those that donated funds and time to create a massively successful first ever Henry County Youth Livestock Auction. The Henry County Youth Livestock Foundation put their hearts into this auction, and it showed.
    All projects from 4-H Livestock members, 4-H Fur and Feathers members and FFA member brought great prices, but the most impressive part was how supportive and generous the community was toward our youth. It makes me proud to be able to work in this fantastic county.

  • HCMS students fundraise for essential items in backpacks for the homeless


    Students in Tara McMahan’s community service class at Henry County Middle School were recently tasked with identifying a group of people, charity or project that was “near or dear to their hearts.”
    Because two of the students in the class, Mason King and Jacob Jeffries, had previously participated in projects that helped the homeless, they suggested doing something that would benefit the homeless in our area. The rest of the class agreed, and soon they were taking steps to sponsor a donation drive.
