This year has been different than any other year. We have all had to learn new things and learn how to do things virtually. In March when everything started the 96 Horse Club 4-H Hipplogy and Horse Bowl Group had been practicing and were ready to go to their competition. Their in-person competition was canceled, and they had the very first SC Hipplogy and Horse Bowl Virtual Contest. The group of junior girls excelled in the competition. This competition was the first for most of these girls.
During the summer, the Lakelands Region (Greenwood, Abbeville, McCormick, and Anderson) put together virtual summer camp packs. We had a Wildlife pack, a Healthy Lifestyles Pack, a Mad Scientist Pack, and a Pollinator Pack. These packs were distributed throughout the Lakelands Region. We sold over 150 packs! During this time, we also gave out 100 packs during a food box giveaway.
The Lakelands Group also has summitted a grant to help us make 1000 of these kits to give out in South Carolina to children in school. These kits will be given to groups of children in the 3rd-5th grade. This grant is going through National 4-H!
For the Students Christmas break we put together a Wildlife box. In this box the 4-H’ers got to give back to nature a little. They made wildlife friendly garland and made birdseed ornaments. All the 4-H’ers had fun and the wildlife loved it.
