Citizenship means a state of being a good citizen, or the behavior expected of a person as a member of a community. My 4H club members are good citizens all the time. That’s something that 4-H teaches us.
For example, our club did a flag project in a neighborhood called Whisper Glen in south Logan County. We bought American flags and spent a Saturday morning putting them by all the mailboxes. And after the 4th of July we will pick them back up.
We even learned some flag etiquette, like don’t let the flag touch the ground, don’t dispose of it in the trash and the stars should always be up.
Other things we have done are we worked at a food bank and stocked the food store and worked in the freezer, took cookies around town for Random Acts of Kindness and we made welcome posters and cookies for a Special Clovers camp.
In 4-H we believe in the power of youth. If you want to learn more about 4-H contact the Logan county extension office (405-282-3331) to find a club near you.
