MILAM 4-H NEWS
The summer time is a great time to learn more about water and the environment. At the Water Workshop on July 24, a group of teen and adult leaders will help you learn about water, environment and related topics.
The workshop will start at 10 a.m. and end about 2 p.m. at Apache Pass on FM 908 North between Rockdale and Thorndale. Lunch will be provided, so please call the Extension Office, 254-697-7045 and sign-up by July 22.
Participants may have the opportunity to get a little wet during some of the activities, so dress casual and in something that you can get a little wet. You will be busy with a variety of games and activities to learn the importance of water.
