Heart of 4-H Award - November 2016
Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce Sara Hansen as winner of November's “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.
Sara has volunteered with 4-H for six years. After three years helping with the Helping Hearts clover kids 4-H club, she organized and is leader of the Clever Clovers 4-H club. The club was a 2015 Nebraska Club of Excellence and does at least one community service project a year — last year they planting flowers at Tabitha Health Care and sewed pillowcases to donate to the foster care program. Sarah has also helped staff shifts at the 4-H food booth at the Lancaster County Super Fair.
Lancaster County 4-H thanks Sara for donating her time and talents. People like her are indeed the heart of 4-H! Read more
