In this past year, the Alva 4-H Club began the first stage of planting a variety of trees at the Woods County Courthouse. They used the planting of an autumn blaze oak tree as the basis for a film on the care and correct trimming of trees, called “Beauty and the Brains.” Discs of the short film were produced for the local school district, the City of Alva, the local Tree Board, and the Alva Beautification Committee.
Through its active participation at various committee and council meetings, Arbor Day activities, and help with Trash-Off among other educational efforts, it’s clear that Alva grows not only beautiful trees, but also beautiful leaders of tomorrow.
Accepting for Alva 4-H Club is Terri Owen and two club members
