This non-profit horse show benefits the Elmore County 4-H Horse Working Group which will help pay for educational materials, future fundraising events, field trips, clinics and 4-H functions throughout the year.

As with anything, progress, technology and innovation change the way we do things. We here at D&B Supply are no different. In the last year and a half we launched our new website that includes relevant content, customers stories, recipe’s, calendar information and of course the ability to purchase online. We are also excited to now offer an online form for the 4-H and FFA discount card.
Congratulations to Megan Charrier and Nicole Jordan for winning the 2011 Eastern National 4H Horse Round-Up Champion Team Presentation in Kentucky earlier this month. Megan and Nicole were awarded a $500 scholarship from AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) and, below, tell about their experience in their own words. Congratulations and good luck next year Megan and Nicole!
Well waking up at 6 o’clock on a Saturday wasn’t very fun, but the nerves for the competition didn’t start until we arrived at the Exposition Building at the Kentucky Fair Grounds. Megan and I were subject to a ton of weird looks since we were both dressed in costume for the speech, and there was even a Wrangler product representative who asked to take a picture of my dyed green Wrangler jeans!
Next week on October 3rd, 4th and 5th the Meridian FFA will be holding an Ag Expo at Meridian High School at the Professional Technical Center on the west side of campus.

With National 4-H Week coming up on October 2nd through the 8th, we thought it would be great for our readers to have a place to share their best memories of 4-H.
Was were your favorite memories? What life lessons did you learn that you have carried over in your adult life? Who Inspired you the most? Have you given back?
Thank you so much for sharing both here and on the D&B Facbook page on Thursday, it is fantastic to read about how an organization can make such an impact!
Anyone that has been involved in 4-H knows the tremendous impact it makes on ones life.
Next week from October 2nd through October 8th, is National 4-H Week where prospective 4-H members can learn about 4-H and all the many opportunities. Although many people know 4-H for the raising and competition of farm animals, 4-H members can be interested in many other projects such as robotics, woodworking, hiking/biking, art and woodworking. You don’t have to live on a farm to be a 4-H member, just a passion and interest in learning new, wonderful things.
