The First National Bank of Altus, by recommendation of Board Chairman Hatton McMahan and Bank President Philip McMahan, will sponsor the banquet by paying the meal expense for members, special guests, the facility rent and custodian fees. Hatton McMahan met recently with the county council president Michelle Stuard to work on the banquet arrangements.
About 200 persons are expected to attend the program which will highlight the 2004-05 4-H year in Jackson County. The 4-H members, leaders and supporters will be recognized for their achievements and contributions in the 4-H program.
Council President Michelle Stuard of Altus 4-H will serve as master of ceremonies.
The theme of the banquet will be "Bubble Up With 4-H." The 4-H clovers will decorate the WOSC Student Center.
The top outstanding members from each club will be recognized. All members who completed a participation form will receive award according to their strong project areas. The naming of the county Hall of Fame awards sponsored by the National Bank of Commerce will climax the program.
Kim Collier and Andrea Decker of Blair have served as the banquet committee chairs. They request all local groups be represented at set-up on Friday, August 13, at 5:30 p.m. in the WOSC Student Center.
