02/12/14 Although it has been snowy, the Marshall County 4-H Jr. Leaders have been active giving back to their community. At the end of January, the youth made more than 100 valentines to give to Miller’s Merry Manor in Plymouth.
In the spirit of giving, this week February 10-16th is Random Act of Kindness Week. Marshall County 4-H encourages all community members to give back and do one act of random kindness this week. Although it was not random, this week, the Jr. Leader group made fleece blankets for a shelter in Marshall County. The youth worked together to make 10 blankets that will be used to keep people warm during this frigid winter.
Jr. Leaders are Marshall County 4-H members in grades 7-12 that have chosen to take the Jr. Leader project in order to better their leadership skills and help in their community. They meet once a month and strive to do some sort of community service activity at least once a month as well. For more information on how to sign up for Jr. Leaders or the 4-H program, call the Marshall County Extension Office at 574-935-8545.
