In celebration of 4-H week and in celebration of the Pennsylvania 4-H Centennial we were able to get the Berks County Commissioners to give a little proclamation in honor of Pennsylvania 4-H's Centennial. It was quite a meeting.
The best part of the presentation was the excitement in the faces of all three commissioners as they talked about how good of a program 4-H is and how it is truly an honor to be giving this proclamation.
I thanked the commissioners on behalf of the 4700 members of the Berks County 4-H Program and on behalf of the State 4-H program as well. Here is a part of the Proclamation:
WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania 4-H Program is a program offered in every country anniversary in 2012, and
WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania 4-H has “Rural Beginnings” but has become a “Global Success”, and
WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania 4-H program of today evolve during these 100 years with the motto “To Make The Best Better” and through the wise use of the four “H’s”, representing Head, Heart, Hands and Health, and
