Members of the Somervell County 4-H Club on Oct. 7 combined to clean up trash along a 2-mile stretch of Glen Rose on Highway 144 South.
That area is assigned to the 4-H Club in the Adopt-A-Highway program, and was in conjunction with the annual statewide community service day organized by the 4-H called “One Day 4-H.”
The cleanup was a joint effort of the main Somervell County 4-H group, with the local 4-H shooting sports club. Members, parents, leaders and volunteers have an opportunity on “One Day 4-H” to say “thank you” for supporting 4-H by giving back to their communities.
Part of the 4-H pledge is “Hands through larger service, which is considered a commitment to making communities better places to live.
Members of 4-H are encouraged to do community service, but are not required, according to the Texas 4-H website.
Somervell County AgriLife Extension Agent Zach Davis manages the local 4-H organization.
