4-H Standard Newsletter

Deep In The Heart Movie - Release Date!

DEEP IN THE HEART - "Official Release Date" in "ALL TEXAS CINEMARK THEATERS" is February 17th. 

"Deep in the Heart" reveals the true-life story of Mr. Richard "Dick" Wallrath. No one person has ever given more financially to the Texas 4-H and Texas FFA Scholarship Programs than Dick Wallrath. He has also provided tremendous financial assistance to 4-H and FFA members through major livestock show premium auctions.  

We sincerely request that our Extension and 4-H Family support this emotion-packed documentary of Dick's life for two reasons. First, it could have an impact on your own life. And secondly, because of Mr. Wallrath’s continued generosity, a portion of all ticket sales will go to both Texas 4-H and Texas FFA to further strengthen their much needed scholarship programs.  

Please promote the importance of the opening weekend of February 17th.  The success of this opening weekend will dictate their plan for nationwide release.  Of course, the more success the movie has, the more funds are contributed to Texas 4-H and Texas FFA.
