Rabbits 'R' Us 4-H Club Donates Aprons

When the 4-H Council discussed purchasing aprons for 4-H’ers working in the 4-H Food Booth at the Lancaster County Fair, members of the Rabbits “R” Us 4-H Club stepped forward with a plan.  They volunteered to purchase, decorate and donate 100 aprons to the 4-H Council to be used at the 4-H Food Booth and other approved events, as they arise.

The funds to purchase the aprons came from the club’s main fundraiser, the Dunking Booth and Duck Pond at the Lancaster County Fair.  Funds generated from the Dunking Booth and Duck Pond are annually used to do landscaping work at the Lancaster Event Center and other community service projects.  

Approximately 15 Rabbits ‘R’ Us club members helped decorate the aprons with the 4-H logo using a fabric resist method. One of the members, Jessica Stephenson, had demonstrated the technique as part of last year’s Presentations Contest. Therefore, Jessica and her sister Jaime, led Rabbits ‘R’ Us members in the process and laundered the aprons after the meeting. They will also be presenting this technique at this year’s Clover College. Thanks to the Event Center for providing space for the club to decorate the aprons.
