Pet Therapy Club
4-H members who have friendly pets are invited to join our 4-H Pet Therapy Club which will take friendly pets to visit the residents at the local assisted living centers like Vista Park, The Landings, and Lakeside Senior Center. This is a great community service project which allows the residents to pet friendly animals and visit with the students. Sign up today at the 4-H office. You must have a friendly pet to participate in this club!
