4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H offers so many projects besides just livestock (pigs, beef, goats, etc.). You can look at projects in Food & Nutrition, Clothing & Textiles, Leadership or anything else you might be interested in. If I can be of any help in anyway, please call the Extension office 830-780-3906. Please continue to let me know of things in your club! I would like to be of any assistance that I can! Meredith Carter, CEA-FCS/4-H Coordinator.

KARNES COUNTY 4-H RECYCLING PROJECT
Karnes County 4-H is sponsoring a “Recycling Project” collecting inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges and cell phones! The 4-H clubs are working with local businesses to collect used inkjet and toner cartridges to keep them out of landfills. We are working with a National Recycling Company to ship all the used cartridges to them so that they can be refilled and used again. If a 4-H’er contacts you about collecting your used ink jet cartridges or toner cartridges please get all the details. They have discontinued some of the cartridges for refill. For more information, contact the Extension Office 780-3906 and we can send you a new form with the list they are excepting.
