Club makes masks

The Champaign Mixed Clovers 4-H Club sewed 53 face masks for community service. Fifty face masks were given to Carle Hospital. Members watched several videos on making the face masks and the Leader made patterns in adult and child sizes that were easier for the members to use.  The members picked up pre-cut fabric and pattern with a sample in a sealed bag from a bench on the leader’s porch.  Some members use their own fabric to cut out the face masks.

One member taught her mon to sew a face mask and send a photo of mon modeling the face mask.  Members liked helping others but also something different to do during this Stay at Home. Learning new skills never know when you need to use them. Thanks to the Facebook/ 4-H Leaders of Champaign-Ford-Iroquois-Vermilion Counties for posting the information as to who contact.

Thanks to Mrs. Linda Thiele, club leader of the Champaign Mixed Clovers 4-H, for this story.

Where to Find Updated Event Information

We are working to make our Unit 4-H website a central place for you to find information about the current status of events.

 
From the State 4-H office:

Club Meetings can continue virtually. Some recommendations are to hold these as you normally would including the following:

  • 4-H Pledge
  • club minutes
  • attendance and key decisions should be recorded in written record
  • Regular club activities can take place as best as possible

It is also important that no member is penalized who is unable to join due to not having adequate internet or technology available. These meetings can count just as a normal in person meeting would. Flexibility and understanding at this time is encouraged!
