4-Hers make recycled mailboxes
Posted: Tuesday, April 20, 2010 8:02 pm RECYCLED MAILBOXES — The 4-H Line and Design Project Group members recently created miniature mail boxes using recycled materials. During 4-H Club meetings this year youth have learned about the importance of conservation and the project group put this knowledge to use by creating the mail boxes. Through this project 4-Hers develop life skills such as ethical decision making, teamwork, achieving goals, responsibility, leadership, responsible citizenship and positive self esteem. According to 4-H volunteer Josh Nance, “4-H engages students in activities that teach personal growth and life skills. The projects and activities help our students become contributing, productive, self-directed members of society. My students look forward to club meetings every month.” Among those participating in the event were (from front) Kari O’Steen, Autumn White, Paul Cobb, Kaelyn Morgan, Noemi Lopez, Allie Johnson, Lilly Moore, Jessi Roach, JP Jones, Heath Cary, Mason Pierce, Grace Crockett and Jessica Hammond.
