On March 6 and 7, a total of 61 Champaign County 4-H members, advisors and parents participated in an Ohio 4-H Week community service event to construct pillows for patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. After much sewing and stuffing, the group constructed 104 pillows that will help comfort children while they undergo treatment at the hospital. Appreciation was expressed for those who participated in the constructing and those who donated fabric and stuffing.
Also during 4-H Week, 4-Hers held Cupcake Wars, with over 15 dozen cupcakes decorated and distributed to Caring Kitchen, the sheriff’s Office, Urbana Police and Fire divisions and the VFW. Participants decorated for three categories: Animals, super hero and imagination. Winners were selected from each category and received $10.
