October named 4-H month

McALESTER — Pittsburg County Commissioners unanimously voted to make October 4-H month on Monday.

The action was taken as the commissioners met for a regular meeting Monday morning at the Pittsburg County courthouse.

Eight 4-H students along with 4-H Extension Educator Greg Owen presented a proclamation naming the month of October as 4-H Month for Pittsburg County.

District 2 Commissioner Chairman Kevin Smith and District 1 Commissioner Gene Rogers both voted to sign the proclamation.

Eight students presented the proclamation including Elisabeth Willis and Madeline Jarrett, Canadian High School; Brandi Moore and Madeline Camp, Haileyville High School; Lexie Lerblance, McAlester High School; Ruth Bullard, Indianola High School; Bryce Wilson, Crowder High School and Skyla Edwards, Hartshorne High School.

Owen said the month of October is a busy one for the 4-H students.

“We are very busy this month,” Owen said.

“We have our awards banquet coming up and our District Leadership Conference also happens this month.”

Also during the meeting the commissioners unanimously approved the fiscal year 2013-2014 budgets for the Pittsburg County Sheriffs Department and the Pittsburg County Animal Shelters.

Pittsburg County commissioners meet Mondays at 9 a.m. in the commissioner’s conference room at the Pittsburg County Courthouse.
