Trailblazers 4-H Club, the Club on the Go

— Written By and last updated by Donna Keene

Trailblazers 4-H ClubHunting, fishing, livestock, cooking, gardening, farming… The Trailblazer 4-H club covers it all. With members ranging from third grade to seniors in high school, boys and girls, it doesn’t matter the subject, we are willing to “try it”.

 The Trailblazers showed their patriotism in January when club members did presentations on flag etiquette and the proper way to retire a flag. We also learned the history of the North Carolina Flag and State Seal.

 We are preparing for upcoming livestock events as well. Parts of the goat, parts of an egg, and the life cycle of a chicken were presented by several club members.

 In February our club made over 90 Valentine’s Day cards for the residents of the Sentara Nursing Home in Barco. One resident commented, “I haven’t had a Valentine since I was a little girl”. The cards not only put a smile on their faces, but put a smile on ours as well.

 This club is on the go, doing community service and working on citizenship. No matter how big or how small, we are ready to try new things.
