Jasper County 4-H members and volunteers have had a busy month with the Missouri 4-H Day of Service.
Jasper County 4-H members chose to call their project Tango Mike from Home. Boxes were set out around the county to collect items to send to servicemen and women serving overseas. Their goal was to send 50 boxes. With the help of our very generous community, they met their goal! On Wednesday, September 13th the 4-H members and volunteers gathered for a “packing party” to prepare the boxes to ship.
In addition to shipping boxes of goodies to our service members, the 4-H members volunteered at the Charlie 22 Outdoors Banquet on Saturday, September 3, 2022. Members helped serve the meal and clear the tables. Then, on Saturday, September 10, 2022 the 4-H members helped Peterson Outdoor Ministries by selling raffle tickets at their Monster Truck Rally in Monett.
To finish up, 4-H members delivered cookies to the first responders of Jasper County. They wanted to make sure they gave cookies to all the police departments, sheriff’s departments, highway patrol, fire departments, and EMS to thank them for their service to the community.
Pleasant Valley Pioneers 4-H club held their first annual Cooking for A Cause, by preparing a meal for the Carthage Fire Department on September 11th. The goal was to thank the Fire Department for their service to our community. The Pleasant Valley Pioneers are looking forward to being able to serve even more in the future.
