Izard County 4-H members wanted to help support Relay for Life. Nancy Pratt, 4-H program assistant attended a Relay for Life Committee meeting to offer 4-H assistance. It was determined 4-H'ers could provide refreshments for the Trivia Night.
4-H'ers Shonna A., Natalie H., Jared H., Kaylee G. and Savannah Y. rolled up their sleeves and went to work. They made chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and snicker doodle cookies, chocolate cupcakes and lemonade to serve at the Relay for Life Trivia Night on April 15 at the Melbourne High School. The refreshments were offered for a donation only to Relay for Life.
Everyone enjoyed the refreshments, the thrill of fun competition, raised some money for a good cause and even learned some interesting trivia facts. Did you know the side of a hammer even had a name? It is called the cheek.
4-H'ers pledge their hands to larger service for their Club, Community, Country and World. "We would like to thank the Relay for Life committee for allowing Izard County 4-H'ers the opportunity to use their hands to larger service. If you have a community service project and would like 4-H'ers help, contact the Izard County Extension office at368-4323, located next to the Melbourne City Hall," a spokesman said.
