HOOK N CHASE Christmas Break “Awesome!” By Larry Peck As a young kid, I always looked forward to two holidays. The most special times for me and my family were 4th of July and Christmas. Now, the 4th was special with fireworks, camping, fishing and a few days of break from a lot of hot, hard work. But, Christmas was the ultimate. It doesn’t get any better than celebrating Jesus’ birthday, Santa coming to Western Oklahoma, finding my house on a red hill near Clinton and leaving me a gun, extra BB’s, coveralls, etc. Christmas Break was so cool—early chores then off to the creek, pond, river to pursue and shoot at anything that would fly or run, To say my brother and I were “gaming” was an understatement. Heck, in the early 70s, a huge snow storm brought us an 18-day break and a lot of good rabbits for supper. I get excited today just remember the bountiful harvest we were able to bring home to Mom for lunch. If

Page 16 - Jan/Feb 2020

you have never had my Mom’s fried quail and quail gravy, fried potatoes, homemade bread with homemade butter and sand plum jelly, you have not lived. Hot, fresh cinnamon rolls that were to die for topped off each meal. That’s why Christmas Break is so Awesome! I didn’t mention getting to see family and old friends. The Peck’s Christmas Break gave us the opportunity to hunt and visit with Grandpa. Uncle Don, a war vet, would come from Colorado. He was a pheasant hunter and I wanted to do that so bad. And, since 1982, you can find me on an annual pheasant hunt with friends and family on Christmas Break. This year, my grandson Trenton and my nephews Treylon and Trew tried to out hunt and out trap me! We hunted eight days straight. I’m exhausted, I’m gassed, I’m proud. I’ve now rested and ready to go to work. I wish Christmas Break could come three or four times a year. It’s Awesome!!

TRENTON’S POST

Hey! It’s me, Trenton Morton.

I just got back from a pheasant hunting. It was a fun trip. I shot four pheasants, and my cousin Traylen shot two and my cousin Trew shot four. I also shot one quail. And … my Papa shot ZERO. It’s fun to go hunting with my cousins because we get to get play at night at the hotel. We had an indoor snowball fight and played Huntingopoly. The most fun was giving Joe Ridley trouble. He’s a friend of my Uncle Randal’s. We also stopped by to see Sam Karber. My Uncle Randal and Papa figured out they’ve been going pheasant hunting since 1982. Thank you Nick for allowing us to hunt. We had a fun time. Now, it’s time to get back to school and work the show animals. See you this spring!

Me and my Papa went to a few of our ponds and went duck hunting. I learned that you have to set your decoys up early or the ducks will be zooming over your head.

Hey Papa!

In early 2019, America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Bayer Fund, partnered with local farmers to nominate rural schools and awarded more than $2.3 million in grants to enhance their science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs. Because area farmers answered the call, Grow Rural Education has awarded Fairview FFA in Major County, Oklahoma with a $10,000 grant. Fairview FFA is one of the many schools across the country that has benefited from the Grow Rural Education program. For each grant-winning school, teachers, students and, oftentimes, community members develop plans to create

Page 22 - Jan/Feb 2020

more engaging and innovative STEM programs. Grow Rural Education grants have helped schools purchase an array of STEM-related materials, such as augmented-reality sandboxes, weather-forecasting and robotics equipment. Fairview FFA will use the Grow Rural Education funds to expand their greenhouse. “America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education is a unique program because farmers play an important role throughout the process, from nominating schools to selecting the grant winners,” said Al Mitchell, President, Bayer Fund. “With the incredible support of local farmers, countless grant-winning schools have shared with us how Grow Rural Education

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 32 Years!

funds have made their STEM programs more engaging and, in several instances, positively impacted test scores.” To qualify for a Grow Rural Education grant, farmers nominated a school or school district to compete for a merit-based grant of either $10,000 or $25,000. School districts that were nominated then submitted a grant application describing their STEM-focused project. Grow Rural Education’s Farmer Advisory Council, consisting of approximately 30 farmer leaders from across the country, reviewed the finalist applications and selected the winning school districts, including Fairview FFA. Since Grow Rural Education began in 2011, it has awarded more than $18 million to more than 1,000 schools in rural communities across the United States.

By Morgan Livingston, Locust Grove FFA Reporter We have hosted a canned food drive the past few weeks and on the Dec.5, we gathered up all the cans and took them to our local food pantry. We have help the local food pantry by taking backpacks full of food from the pantry to the schools every Thursday. These backpacks go home with students who may need extra food. The pantry was very thankful, as they were running low on canned goods and it is approaching the holiday season. We had an excellent turnout with the amount of cans provided by the members of our chapter.

M-O FFA Chapter Holds Christmas Toy Drive

M-O FFA Members with toys collected for the Logan County DHS. From the left: Paige Day, Rachel Williams. Baylee Brown, Karlie Thomason and Joanna Orner, By Baylee Brown, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter The Mulhall-Orlando FFA Chapter held a toy drive from December 1-10 to collect toys going to the Logan County Department of Human Services (DHS). Over the span of just ten days, the FFA chapter, along with the help of friends and family in the community, were able to collect a total of 151 toys. Donation boxes were placed at the M-O Elementary and High School buildings for students and community members to drop off toys. The toys collected will be used as gifts for foster children at the Logan County DHS Christmas party. Any remaining toys will be used throughout the year for birthdays, in the visitation room, or be given to children who come into the office and are waiting on a new foster family. This community service project was proposed by FFA member Paige Day who wanted to find a way to give to children in need at Christmas. “I feel that every child deserves a gift at Christmas and knowing that we can help make that a reality and brighten a child’s day just makes me happy. FFA teaches us to serve others, and this is just one way we can do that.” said Paige. The National FFA Organization embraces the idea of giving back to our communities. The last line of the FFA motto, “Living to Serve,” shows the important role service plays in our organization. The M-O FFA Chapter is happy to have this opportunity to serve others and bring joy to children during this holiday season. agyouth.com

Oklahoma 4-H and Ronald McDonald House Charities Longtime Partners By Cortney Evans, OK State 4-H Council West District Representative The Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development program has many statewide service projects including Pull for Kids. Pull for Kids benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHA) of Oklahoma City and Tulsa. RMHC provides rooms for families of children in the Children’s Hospital at no cost to the families. The Oklahoma 4-H State Council wanted to find more ways to help those at the RMHC, so they decided to expand the Pull for Kids Service project to better help the charity’s needs. You can help by collecting the tabs from pop cans or donating new stuffed animals or non-perishable canned food. Donated items may be dropped off at your local OSU Cooperative Extension office. There are other ways to help the RMHC. They love having volunteers come help, and they have many

agyouth.com

different ways those over 18 years of age can serve. Ronald McDonald House volunteers play an important role in the day to day operations of the RMH. People can help in the RMH Family Room checking people in and keeping the room clean and cozy, and being a kind face when they have had a long day or, in many cases, a long few weeks. RMH also looks for groups to help out with special projects around the RMH. Project volunteers have helped with deep cleaning, staging pull tabs, decorating for holidays and making snack bags or baking for families. There always are ways to get involved and help families feel more at home. The RMHC offers amazing support and opportunities for those seeking care for their child. If you would like to volunteer at the RMH, please visit rmhc-okc.org or call (405) 271-3193.

Ronald McDonald House Charities knows helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC can help address those problems, whether they involve housing near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community. RMHC has local chapters in more than 64 countries and regions with: •368 Ronald McDonald Houses •252 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms •50 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles •Grants to non-profit organizations that also focus on the needs of children •Chapters around the world creating country-specific programs

At the West Action Conference, 4-H Members learned to tie comforters at the Wrapped in Love service project, with all the blankets being donated to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics to comfort children affected by parental drug use.

Across Oklahoma, 4-H Members Do Community Service Projects By Erin Slagell, Oklahoma 4-H Reporter Each October, 4-H’ers from across the state gather at their 4-H district conferences. 4-H’ers in attendance have the opportunity to reunite with friends, make new acquaintances, and participate in workshops, leadership activities, and community service projects. At the Southeast District Conference, 4-H members took part in two service projects within their area. First, they volunteered at a childcare center in Ardmore, Oklahoma. At the center, members interacted with children by reading them books and playing with them outside. They also helped cultivate the center’s garden. Second, 4-H’ers volunteered at the Madill Animal Shelter, making dog beds and socializing with animals up for adoption. The members learned about animal cruelty issues in their area and how they could play a role in reducing the problem. Southeast District 4-H’ers volunteered nearly 200 hours serving their community. In the Northeast, 4-H members gathered at the Northeast District Youth in Action. At YIA, 4-H’ers kicked off the conference with a projPage 42 - Jan/Feb 2020

ect to benefit community members across Northeast Oklahoma. They packed bags full of school supplies, blankets, and canned food items, which were then donated to the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department informed those in attendance that all the bags packed would be delivered to the HOPE House in Muskogee, benefiting women and children who lived there. The school supplies would go to Webbers Falls Public Schools, which had been impacted by flooding earlier this year. Also, 4-H’ers had the opportunity to raise money for the Oklahoma Children’s Hospital by voting for their favorite contestant in the Northeast District 4-H Voice talent contest. In addition, $5 from each conference registration was donated to Change for Change. Finally, 4-H members packaged food for the Stamp Out Starvation program. The meals packaged were immediately taken to families in need in Mexico. In all, the Northeast District made a huge impact in their community, raising $1,816.48 for Change for Change and packaging 44,712 meals.

At the West Action Conference, 4-H’ers participated in a multitude of community service projects. 4-H’ers were divided into groups, and each group traveled to a different location to volunteer. For instance, one group volunteered at the Salvation Army, where members stocked shelves with food. Here, struggling families can come twice a month and shop as if in a grocery store, free of charge. 4-H’ers also helped unpack food at Skyline Urban Ministries, a ministry devoted to helping lower income families provide food for their families. They also provide many other services, such as eye exams and school supplies. Another group worked at Citizens Caring for Children, where 4-H’ers folded and packaged undergarments for foster families. Often, when a child is placed with a foster family, they need to gather necessary supplies quickly. Citizens Caring for Children provides that assistance. A group also volunteered at the Regional Food Bank, where they packaged cereal and packed bags full of nutritious and protein-filled food for children to take home from school on the weekends. Members learned to tie comforters at the Wrapped in Love service project, with all the blankets being donated to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics to comfort children affected by parental drug use. West District 4-H members enjoyed their time together and learning about different ways to serve their communities. By participating in these events, 4-H’ers learned true leadership includes serving the community and making a difference. District conferences provide training for youth that will be beneficial for them as they lead activities and service opportunities back at home on the county level. If you are interested in learning more about 4-H and how you can get involved, contact your Oklahoma State University county Extension office or visit http://4h.okstate.edu/. agyouth.com
