Spreading 4-H Christmas cheer

By Stacy Teston County Extension Agent

The Bandera County 4-H Council hosted a countywide Holiday Jolly Christmas Community Service Challenge. The organization that council chose to collect items for this year is the Cowboy Capital Christmas Charity Celebration - formally known as The Christmas Charity Ball.
All of the county's 4-H clubs were asked to collect new toys and canned goods/non-perishable items. There was an incentive of $100 to the club that collected the most items. The Shotgun club collected 113, Pioneer collected 76, and Pipe Creek collected 69 items.
The 4-H council presented the items to Helen Hults, representing the Bandera Cowboy Capital Christmas Charity, at the December 4-H council meeting.
