HOW CAN WE HONOR OUR VETERANS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON?
The Buxton-Reynolds Generation II Cloverbuds 4-H Club believes in the power of young people. They empower our young people with the skills to lead for a lifetime. They provide a research-based experience that includes a mentor, a hands-on project, and a meaningful leadership opportunity to improve the world around us. In the past, this group has made Valentine’s Day cards for our local Veterans. However, this year they have chosen a hands-on project to honor the Traill County Veterans for Christmas. 13 Cloverbud students ages 6-14 created a Holiday Tribute Display with homemade ornaments as a “little salute of thanks” to our Veterans. These dedicated hardworking 4-H members include:
- Casyn Arvidson
- Adelaide Cieplak
- Danielle Cieplak
- Cole Erdmann
- Dalton Erdmann
- Caleb Kloster
- Jared Kloster
- Levi Kloster
- Mallory Kloster
- Meghan Moch
- Michaela Moch
- Molly Moch
- Kasper Moch
