An Easy Community Service Project

If you’re looking for a great way to teach Cloverbuds about community service as well as give them a simple craft project to do at a Cloverbud meeting.

Fleece Tie blankets and scarves are useful for many occasions.  A 4-H afterschool program made two blankets and a bunch of scarves to be donated to the local warming shelter for use when the weather gets cold again.  Although the fleece blankets cannot be used at the shelter, they can be given away to help keep out the cold for those who are not staying at the shelter.

Fleece blankets can also be donated to food pantries and hospitals to be given to newborns and for patients to take home with them.

As with any project it is a good idea to check out rules and regulations before donating them to any organization.

Here are some pictures of the ones made recently.

Scholarship Opportunity

I’ve always held the belief that Leadership is one of the best skills to learn.  Some people are born leaders and some people are born followers.  I myself was a born follower, but through my 4-H experiences I learned how to be a leader.  And I think I’m a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.

I wish I was still applying for scholarships because this is a great one that 4-H youth should have in the bag.

Who can apply, you ask?

Graduating seniors from a Marathon County high school.

Hope you someone from 4-H gets it!
