Our 4-H Clover Kid Gabby Gilmore has been in St. Jude Hospital since early this year. Her club members wanted to do something to show how grateful they are for the wonderful care she has received. The Jolly -Ho club held a road block and sold raffle tickets to raise money to send to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Their efforts raised $348.
The club wants to thank everyone who helped by donating or supervising their work.
The New Madrid County Extension Office, Missouri 4-H and the University of Missouri are proud to see these club members not just "wishing" for but getting out and causing things to happen. It is results like this which make us know we are doing the right thing in our drive to help club members become caring, contributing members of our communities. They are already showing the characteristics of good citizenship.
Go Jolly-Ho and all new Madrid County 4-H Clubs!
