San Saba Middle School students tour Washington, D.C.

By Monica Shahan

Nineteen San Saba Middle School students and seven adults traveled to Washington, D.C. last weekend to connect with our nation's history and culture through museums, monuments and memorials. We began our adventure by touring the following Smithsonians: The National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History, and The National Museum of American Art. The evening concluded with a guided sightseeing tour of the WWII Memorial, Washington Monument, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

Day two proved to be just as memorable as day one! We began the day with a stop at the United States Marine Corps War Memorial before heading into Arlington National Cemetery. We witnessed the awe-inspiring Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and learned of many of our nation's heroes while walking the hallowed grounds.

San Saba 4-H dances into 3rd at District Round Up in Share the Fun competition

By Melanie Potter

You know how hard it is to get up in front of an audience and share one of your talents, especially if some of that audience includes judges. Most people in life do not find this the most comfortable thing to do with their time. But there are a few in the world who have a talent that allows them to create, practice, and perform before those around them.

A team from the San Saba 4-H youth chose to do just that by competing in the District's Share the Fun competition at Round Up on May 16th. The team of Ellie Fauley, Lauren Riley and Lindsey Riley created and performed a dance in the choreographed routine, Junior division of the competition, to the song, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."
