This month we would like to congratulate the Happy Hustlers 4-H Club from Dawes County for being awarded the Nebraska 4-H Club of the month! Together this club is helping its members develop strong citizenship and teamwork skills through a variety of activities. In fact, the Happy Hustlers keep themselves busy all year long!
During the winter months, the Club completes a variety of community service projects. This year, the group shopped for toys which they donated to their local Shop with a Cop program. Club members also traveled around their community collecting canned goods for the local soup kitchen. More recently, members made tray favors which they delivered to a local nursing home. The Happy Hustlers also visited a local retirement home and played games with residents. Together they created spring bonnets out of newspaper and decorated them with flowers and ribbons. The Happy Hustlers had a great time and enjoyed sharing their creativity and laughter with the residents.
With spring here now, the Happy Hustlers 4-H Club has started preparing for some outdoor community service projects. Soon the club will clean up over ten miles of county roads as part of their annual roadside cleanup project. Club members will also take part in two upcoming city cleanups. The Happy Hustlers are even looking forward to participating in their community's 4th of July Flag Raising program. This year's theme is "What America Means to Me." Each member will be sharing what America means to them personally in front of over 60 people.
There is no doubt that the Happy Hustlers are dedicating to improving their community. In doing so, they have earned the this month's Nebraska 4-H Club of the Month award. Congratulations, Happy Hustlers 4-H Club!
