Back Together!

On May 18, 2021 after a 15 month absence The Lucky Clover 4-H Club was able to hold a meeting at the Monticello Library in Shawnee, Kansas. This is the preferred meeting place for our club, but due to the COVID pandemic closing down public library meeting places we were unable to use the space. The Lucky Clovers have met at public parks, the county extension office and over zoom for over a year. Many comments were made about how members have gotten taller and changed in the past year. It was fantastic to be in person again.

How Do You Help with a Holiday Party During a Pandemic?

In this crazy year of 2020 the pandemic cancelled many plans. The Lucky Clover 4-H Club rolled with the times to help Shawnee Community Services after they cancelled their Annual Holiday Children’s Party. Shawnee Community Services altered the usual party but still celebrated in a safe way. The Lucky Clovers donated 58 wrapped gifts so that 58 kids in need could receive a present. Board games are requested for donation to appeal to a variety of kids. On the Shawnee Community Services website Lucky Clover 4-H club was listed as a contributor for the event. Thanks go out to Jessica and Abby for organizing and delivering the donations.

Congratulations at making the most out of this usual year!

Lucky Clover 48 Hours of 4-H 2020

For National 4-H Week the Lucky Clover 4-H Club collected donations of nonperishable foods for Shawnee Community Services, a local food pantry and free clothing resource for those in need in the Kansas City area. Prior to collecting donations from friends and family, club members sent out information about the food drive using social media and email. Vice President, Abby, provided the material to share what 48 Hours of 4-H is, what Shawnee Community Services provides, the nonperishables most in need, and items for Thanksgiving dinner boxes. The effort was a great success with 589 food items collected and delivered in October. Club member Kyndal was able to obtain a business donation of $200 that will allow Shawnee Community Services to purchase items needed the most.
