Missouri Farm Family Recognized

Darrell and Joyce Dothage and family of Warrenton were among the families honored during the Missouri Farm Family Day, Aug. 15 at the Missouri State Fair. The Dothage Family was selected as the Warren County Missouri Farm Family by the Warren County Extension Council and local Farm Bureau. The family includes Darrell,Joyce, Dwayne Dothage and Donna Sherman. Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their communities, involved in agriculture and participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H or FFA.

It's a great time to join 4-H!

4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We are a volunteer-led organization that reaches boys and girls through small groups called clubs. 4-H members choose from over 40 projects in which to participate. Most projects use hands-on learning experiences to teach subject matter and life-skills such as cooperation, leadership and decision making — skills that can be applied over and over for a lifetime. Contact our office at 636-456-3444 to learn how to join 4-H. Clover Kid groups for 5 to 7 year olds will be forming soon.
