Escambia County 4-H club Celebrates its Centennial as Oldest Continuous Club in Florida
The Escambia County 4-H club of Barreneau Park is celebrating their 100th Anniversary. It is the longest continuously operating 4-H chapter in Florida and one of the oldest in the country. Since its inception in 1914, hundreds of boys and girls have been able to gain knowledge and develop skills in leadership, citizenship, livestock, horses, food and nutrition, environmental education, marine science, shooting sports and public speaking. To celebrate the centennial event, current and old members will perform 100 hours of community service and donations including reading materials to nursing homes, food and shoes to the needy, baking goods to give to local firefighters, and writing thank you cards for the men and women who serve in our military.
