4-H

On Saturday, Dec. 16, the Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Club, Blue Group hosted the Letcher Community Christmas.
Nathan Linke visited with the group about attending Teen Leadership Camp on the SDSU campus next June.
First, members went caroling, starting at Jake’s Lounge as a large group. Then, they split into smaller groups and went to homes.
After caroling, families in the 4-H club provided soup, sandwiches, and goodies, and then Bingo was enjoyed by all. Approximately 80 people attended.

The Town ‘N Kountry Kids Blue Group spent a morning at the Letcher Community Center sewing for the “Blanket Buddies” community service project.
They practiced designing a patchwork baby quilt, sewing quarter inch seams, and matching corners. One quilt top was completed.
The club will be holding more sewing days to create more blankets and will distribute the blankets to healthcare facilities in the area.
