4-H Archery Club
4-H Archery Club

The 4-H Hamilton County Archery Club invites all Hamilton County youth in grades four through 12 to join the club this month. The 4-H Archery Club offers young people the opportunity to learn the sport of archery and to improve technique and accuracy by participating in archery practices held twice a month (October through April). All practices are led by 4-H-certified archery instructors. Archery club members compete at the state level by grade level and bow type in the spring.

4-H Archery Club members also participate throughout the year in 4-H club activities such as public speaking, service projects, and the annual 4-H Piggy Bank and Art Poster competitions. Club members learn record-keeping skills, as well. The 4-H portfolios they create can help them win awards, trips and college scholarships.

Two meetings for prospective new members are scheduled: Saturday, Aug. 16 at 2 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 23 at 3:30 p.m. Those interested in joining the 4-H Archery Club should attend one of these meetings, both of which will be held at the UT & TSU Extension - Hamilton County Office. The address is 6183 Adamson Circle, Chattanooga, TN 37416 (right next to the Bonny Oaks Tag & Title Office).

Dade County And The Arts - Art Within Community

For several years, a monthly open mic show featured a variety of performers without censorship.  I performed in the first show, watched it develop over time, and was in the audience during the last show.

Roy Exum: Two More Kick Out UAW

Woody Hayes, the great Ohio State football coach, used to teach his players to “paralyze resistance with persistence” but, my word, the likable theory has taken quite a beating in the past two years at the NTN-Bower ball-bearing plant in Hamilton, Ala. The workers there voted to decertify from the United Auto Workers union two years ago but getting the UAW out the door has turned ... (click for more)
