Hays Co. 4-H participates in Roundup, members receive scholarships

Hays County 4-H members recently participated in the 2015 Texas 4-H Roundup on June 9-11, at the Texas A&M University campus in College Station.  
Roundup encompasses numerous state level 4-H contests, scholarship presentations, recognition assemblies, educational workshops and evening entertainment. Roundup is the highlight of the 4-H year, in which months – and sometimes years – of hard work pay off for both youth and adult participants.
The Texas 4-H Foundation presented more than $2.3 million in scholarships to 4-H members.

IHOP celebrating 57 years with 57 cent pancakes

When Al and Jerry Lapin opened the first International House of Pancakes in Toluca Lake, California in 1958, their guests could always count on an experience that would make them smile. While much has changed since they opened 57 years ago – gas is no longer 24 cents per gallon and the U.S. has seen 10 different presidents – guests can still count on IHOP for a smile, and 57 cent pancakes definitely help.
