The Hillbillies 4-H Club recently elected office holders and attended officer training at Bellemead Church in Point Pleasant.
This training helps prepare the officers for their new roles in their 4-H club. The training is conducted by adult 4-H volunteers throughout the Mason County community. It was informational and a great way to unite all 4H’ers. The members of the Hillbillies club wish all 4H clubs, and their officers, “good luck” in this new season.
Also, each fall, the Hillbillies 4-H Club and Hobos Cloverbuds participate in “Make-A-Difference Day.”
This year, the project took place on Oct. 25.
It is the tradition for the club to go door-to-door, handing out homemade soup and cookies to the neighbors in the Letart community. The club members make the goodies themselves for the distribution.
Club members attending were Chloe Rickard, Nate Harris, Konner Koenig, Parker Fields, Joseph Hoffman, Matthew Thomas, Jasmine Howard, Carolee Hoffman, Nathan Thomas, Leah Hoffman, Jace Howard, Wyatt Harris, Zahne Dangerfield, Justin Roush, Brice Fields, and Christopher Thomas.
Volunteers across America join for “Make-A-Difference Day,” which is one of the largest days of nationwide service. It originated in 1992 for people to come together to improve the lives of others.
