Two local 4H members completed their All Star projects this year: socks for seniors and repairs to the Bolado Park rodeo grounds.
Gracie Mansmith and local 4H members came together on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, to give handmade socks to the senior citizens of Mabie Northside, Mabie Southside and Whispering Pines senior centers. Gracies is applying to be one of the counties 4H All Stars, and as a portion of this she organized the event to give back to the seniors of our community.
Meanwhile over at the Bolado Park rodeo grounds, Garrett Mansmith organized and accomplished another community project. He and other 4H members replaced the wooden seats around the back side of the rodeo arena. This project involved the entire 4H community and will benefit everyone that uses the facility. Garrett’s project took place on March 10.
