Chap­ple com­pletes Emer­ald Di­a­mond Clover Project

Dorchester Star - - REGIONAL -

EAS­TON — Kate Chap­ple, a mem­ber of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay 4-H Club, re­cently com­pleted her Emer­ald Di­a­mond Clover Project. She helped or­ga­nize a linen and blan­ket do­na­tion drive for Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue in Cam­bridge.

She en­listed the help of her fel­low club mem­bers to get friends, fam­ily and com­mu­nity mem­bers to do­nate used blan­kets, sheets and tow­els for Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue to use for an­i­mals at their res­cue cen­ter. Chap­ple and club mem­bers also were able to get some do­nated food and dog treats for the cen­ter.

On Feb. 27, Chap­ple and fel­low 4-H mem­ber EJ Mil­hol­lan de­liv­ered the items to the cen­ter and re­ceived a tour of the fa­cil­ity. They saw so many ar­eas where help is needed that the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay 4-H club plans to go back to the site to vol­un­teer with gar­den­ing, path clear­ing and dog­walk­ing.

Tal­bot County 4-H em­pow­ers young peo­ple with the skills to lead for a life­time. If you have a child who would like to join a chap­ter in Tal­bot County 4-H, call 410-822-1244, email Tom Hut­son at thut­son@umd.edu or see the flyer on­line at ex­ten­sion.umd. edu/tal­bot-county.

Adults are wel­come to be­come 4-H vol­un­teers. Vol­un­teers share their skills by help­ing with 4-H projects and pro­grams or start­ing 4-H clubs that cre­ate new op­por­tu­ni­ties for youth.
