Lassen County 4H Ambassador’s Corner – Finding New Ways to Honor Veterans This Month

By Rebecca Kirklin
2020-2021 4H County Ambassador

Lassen County 4-H clubs have some fun things planned for Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. Normally, 4-H members honor Veterans by thanking them in the Veterans Day parade. This year, 4-H members are finding new ways to honor Veterans.

Johnstonville 4-H members met at the Lassen County Arts building and participated in some multicultural activities for the month of October. They learned about artist, Elizabeth Lepe Arredondo, and with the help of Lassen County Arts volunteer, Edna Lepe, the kids made papel chino.

Then they were introduced to Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) by looking at the alters displayed in the lobby of the Lassen County Arts building.

In October the Countywide Leadership Development Project, for 4-H’ers 7th grade and older, hosted cookie decorating classes by the CraftieLady Cookies. Members donated some of their sugar cookies to CalFire as a thank you for all their hard work this fire season. The Leadership group also collected non-perishable foods to donate to the Soaring Eagle Blue Star Moms for care packages.

Standish 4-H will be assembling a beautiful Thanksgiving Holiday Basket for a family in need with the help of Shaffer Elementary School. Their officer team organizes this surprise delivery. Standish 4-H also recognizes our Veterans and their unconditional service to our country.

Milford 4-H will be placing American Flags at the Milford Community Cemetery before Veteran’s Day. The members will be participating in Operation Christmas Child in the month of December. Milford 4-H will also have a COVID-19 Christmas fundraiser. Check out Milford 4-H of Lassen County on Facebook for more information.

Lake 4-H will be holding their monthly pancake breakfast on Saturday, November  21, 2020. The breakfast will be held at Janesville Fire Hall from 7am to 10am. The cost is $6. The breakfast is eggs with a choice of pancakes or biscuits & gravy, and a choice of bacon or sausage. As of right now the pancake breakfast is a drive through only. And remember, veterans always eat free!

Richmond 4-H will be helping posting flags at Diamond Crest Cemetery on Veterans Day.

Lassen county 4-H appreciates all veterans. Thank you for your service.  We hope you and your families have a Happy Thanksgiving.
