4-H in the  News

Southern Grace 4-H Club met  in November and made pretty pumpkins out of jar rings and festive tape.  These were very fun to use decorating our Thanksgiving tables.  The club met in December and made different ornaments recycling Christmas cards, some which held treats!  They even got in a little hand sewing with one.  Everyone seemed to enjoy that, so they are looking to do some more hand sewing this year.   The club also enjoyed Christmas music, hot chocolate, and snacks.
