“4-H Hands to Service Day” at the Arboretum
The impacts of Hurricane Florence are severe across North Carolina, and in many places, long-lasting. During the storm, the N.C. Cooperative Extension of New Hanover County at the Arboretum was impacted significantly and clean-up efforts are underway, and we NEED your help!
A “4-H Hands to Service” Day is set for Thursday, 27 September 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is an excellent opportunity for 4-H’ers, volunteers, leaders, parents, and the advisory council to come together to help with the clean-up. We need help with raking and removal of small limbs and twigs around the front portion of the Arboretum.
Snacks and water will be provided. You are welcome to bring a bag lunch if you like.
We ask that everyone who helps to please remember the following:
- Wear closed-toed shoes (tennis shoes). NO sandals, flip-flops, or opened-toed shoes of any kind are allowed.
- Wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty.
- Bring work gloves if you have them.
If you, your club, or family would like to be a part of “4-H Hands to Service” Day,
please RSVP no later than 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, 26 September 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide a name and how many are attending.
The third “H” in the 4-H pledge represents…my HANDS to larger service. Be a part of the “4-H Hands to Service” Day and help restore the Arboretum!
