Victoria County 4-H Harvest of Fun takes place Sunday
Sept. 13, 2012 at 4:13 a.m.
Crossroads residents looking for a bit of barbecue and a chance to support area youth will soon be in luck.
Victoria County 4-H will host its annual Harvest of Fun from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Victoria Community Center.
Now in its 24th year, the event includes barbecue plates, a silent auction and carnival-style games for children, said Alyssa Smith, Texas AgriLife Extension agent for 4-H and youth development.
Barbecue will sell for $8, she said, while people can purchase game tickets individually or pay $6 for an all-access wristband.
All 13 Victoria County 4-H clubs are required to participate, she said, and proceeds go to fund entry fees, trips and the like.
Smith, who is new to Victoria, said she looks forward to her first Harvest of Fun and said the community's generosity makes a difference in the area programs.
"The amount of support we receive from the community is overwhelming," she said. "This really is a great county."
