Yes, it’s that time of year again for Grambling Middle School 4-H Club to venture out into the community, within the school and with nonprofit organizations to assist, experiment, explore, share and participate.

The title wasn’t necessarily headed “4-H” but the participants were members of our 4-H club. In late July, our community service volunteer, Gary Dupree, hauled several red, vine-ripe, sweet watermelons that were distributed to businesses, community supporters, faculty, principal and 4-H members to enjoy. In addition, we observed that the birds and deer also enjoyed them.
