4-H members give grant presentation to board of supes

Sixteen Nevada County 4-H members gave a presentation Tuesday to the board of supervisors on their five $1,000 grants and community service projects completed in the past year.

Daniel Ramey explained that the grant for Habitat for Humanity was used to purchase floor tile for the latest Habitat home. 4-H members worked with local contractors to install the tile and help with landscaping.

Shelby Jordan explained that the grant obtained for the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition to help train youth how to safely intervene to prevent bullying. The 4-H members took the training and made their own a training video.

Andrew Bousfield reported on the grant for the Resolve2Run, a new 5K10K in the Chicago Park community, which benefits the Chicago Park School, the 4-H Club and the Peardale/Chicago Park Firemen’s Association. Resolve2Run will be the first Grand Prix run of 2014.

Emma Durham told how 4-H partnered with the Fire Safe Council to make defensible space around the home of a needy senior citizen. The grant was used to produce a professional video for Fire Safe Council to use when training individuals how to make their homes fire safe.

Jazzy Willis explained about the grant used to produce a cookbook for the Nevada Food Bank. The youth collected recipes that used foods distributed by the Food Bank. Each supervisor was presented with a cookbook.

Sylvia Crane, 4-H alumni, announced that a 4-H reunion will be held Aug. 10, during the Nevada County Fair. The reunion is part of celebrating the 100-year anniversary of 4-H. The supervisors were each presented with a 4-H 100-year commemorative pin and magnet.
