Richland County 4-H Jr. Leaders Complete Care Packages for Soldiers
The Richland County 4-H Jr. Leaders are once again busy "Making the Best Better." The Jr. Leaders are senior 4-H members from across Richland County who have dedicated themselves to going above and beyond the club level to develop leadership skills, plan and implement 4-H events, promote the 4-H program and serve as role models for younger 4-H members. The most recent event that the Richland County Jr. Leaders planned and implemented was a community service event, which provided care packages for Soldiers. The Jr. Leaders spent a month collecting items that could be put into care packages for troops who are currently deployed. Such items included personal care items, food and drink items, puzzles, cards, stationery and other small items. At the end of the month, the Jr. Leaders came together and sorted the items. They had gathered items for well over a dozen individual care packages. The Jr. Leaders felt that it was important to give back to the men and women who serve our Country.
