Black Bear Club celebrates volunteers

Club Treats volunteers during Volunteer Week April 6-13

Seven members of the Black Bear 4-H club met to bake treats to give to volunteers. When done with the baking we talked about how this service-learning project made us feel.

Amber and Dana learned how to roll dough and had fun. Kelsi and Dalton thought if felt good to let volunteers know we appreciate them. Megan said, " It's important to thank volunteers and reward them for what they've done." Justine is in the Food project and said, "I liked passing on my skills to the younger members and helping them learn that putting time into rewarding others is the right thing to do." Morena felt good about making treats for volunteers and recognizing all they do for others.

Boxes of goodies were given to John Poston with Kids Against Hunger, volunteers at the Hospital, Mounted Eagles, and Pequot Lakes Library, and individuals Tina Foster and Terry Hansen from Nisswa.

Crow Wing County Brainerd Sewing Camp

A Youth Sewing Camp was held for area youth in grades 4- 8. This sewing camp is for youth who have no or very little sewing machine experience. Participants learned how to use the sewing machine and sew a straight seam. They completed a take-home pillowcase.

Sewing Project, March meeting

Sewing Project Meeting

On March 23 Morena, Emelia, Peyton, Reese and Rylie met to learn how to sew mittens. They learned about characteristics of wool and why it is a good material for mittens.

After learning about wool they used recycled wool sweaters to make the outside of the mittens and the lining from fleece.

The cost of each pair of mittens was $4.00. These mittens could cost between $12 - $20 if purchased in a store.

Each of the girls was shown how to embellish the mittens. Some choose to embroider designs and others sewed on buttons.

Since this sewing activity was an educational experience, these 4-H members will be able to enter their mittens as a fair exhibit and tell the judge about the process.

This was a fun project. Next time this sewing group meets they will tour a fabric shop to learn about patterns and different types of fabric.
