H4: Head, Heart, Hands, And HealthSep 26th, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Editorials
Every two years, the State 4-H Council votes on the State Project to promote community service and provide 4-Hers across the state opportunities to become more involved in their communities. This year the community service theme for Florida 4-H will be Serving Those Who Serve Us. Day after day our communities are kept safe and operational by those who serve us such as firemen, police officers, EMS workers, military personnel, garbage collectors, teachers, government officials, members of the non-profit sector, spiritual leaders, and so many more. 4-H has a clear goal of “being concerned with the welfare of others, accepting responsibilities of citizenship, determining values and attitudes by which to live, and learning how to work with others.” We would now like to take time to honor and serve those who not only teach us how to follow this path but live it themselves every day. Madison 4-H would like to encourage all youth organizations in the area to adopt this project for a year…a month…or even just a day to serve those who serve us so well without expecting anything in return.
