Give Thanks!

This is the time of the year we tend to be mindful of giving thanks or being thankful. On behalf of the Junior Leader Club, I am thankful for the following:

  • A membership of 24 eager 4-H’ers wanting to further develop their leadership skills and serve their community.
  • A slate of great Junior Leader Club Officers willing to guide the club.
  • Caring and concern for first responders/military/elderly in our community through our service-learning project “Helping Hands, Healing Hearts”.
  • Mentors for younger 4-H’ers.
