The Times (Northeast Benton County) - - COMMUNITY - LILYAN LUBBESS Spe­cial to The TIMES

Ap­ple Spur is a 4-H group that meets the sec­ond Mon­day of ev­ery month at the Pea Ridge Her­itage Build­ing. Ap­ple Spur mem­bers par­tic­i­pate in a va­ri­ety of com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing the Ben­ton County Fair. Mem­bers also do com­mu­nity ser­vice, such as trash cleanups, Food Pantry do­na­tions, Ron­ald McDonald House do­na­tions, and Sal­va­tion Army Red Ket­tle Bell Ring­ing at Christ­mas time.

Ev­ery year, the lead­ers of Ap­ple Spur take the mem­bers out for a yearly trip. This year, mem­bers chose to go to Fast Lanes in Rogers. The mem­bers were granted a $20 fun card. They were also awarded a gi­nor­mous pizza, a game of bowl­ing, and a round of laser tag. This yearly ad­ven­ture is some­thing the mem­bers look for­ward to all year along.
