The 4-H Club program has been far-reaching in developing youth. Some two million other 4-H' ers join Okmulgee County 4-H Club members when they say, "I Pledge:
My head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty
My hands to larger service and
My health to better living for,
My club, my community, and my country."

The member gets his or her satisfaction from learning a skill or perfecting their habits of workmanship. The member gets his or her satisfaction from learning a skill or perfecting their habits of workmanship.
