4-H Teen Council

The Lancaster County 4-H Teen Council met on Sunday, Sept. 11 and participated in a community service project, Cranestorm. The Brain Injury Association of Nebraska is launching a project called “Cranestorm -- Wishes in Flight.” The goal of this project is to fold and collect 36,000 origami cranes, one for every Nebraskan living with a disability due to brain injury. In Japanese culture the crane symbolizes honor, loyalty, and world peace. Cranes will be collected from 9/11 through 11/11 (Veteran’s Day). They will be displayed in the state capital during Brain Injury Awareness Week, March 4-10. To learn more about participating in this community service project, visit http://biane.org/
